Dramatic Origami Dresses

Created for inspirational and experimentation pursuits, this series of elegant and dramatic origami outfits  is the work of Montreal-based artists Melika Dez and Pauline Loctin.  Known for movement photography and paper art respectively, the two decided to take on this ambitious project in New York and Paris, using ballet dancers as their muse, and the models for the intricate paper dresses. The results are flamboyant, eye-catching, and impressive.  Via Fubiz:

“Paper can be a fragile material to work with and that is exactly why we decided to make the impossible, possible. No matter which element we would be confronted to, water (rain), wind, we wanted to show that we are limitless.”
