Long before Lady Gaga showed up in Thierry Mugler's starry suits,
Even long before fashion designers add origami touch to their designs. The Coltejer  fabric company in Colombia produced a line called "Linea Origami" in 1973. The ads stated. "The Origami line -The Japanese art of folding paper - is designed based on one of those paper models those we folded when we were children. With a stunning variety of patterns of the Origami line you can do anything, from a coat to a toy. In a style from today, very modern, dynamic, joyful... in a "very Coltejer" style.

For his line "132 5", Issey Miyake invented a foldable dress that can be flattened into 2 dimensional form. To make an intricate clothing pattern like this one, Issey Miyake using a software program, devised by computer scientist Jun Mitani, that generates intricate three-dimensional shapes from a single flat sheet of paper.
It’s this multidisciplinary process that lends the collection its name. The number “1″ refers to the single piece of cloth used to make each item, “3″ to indicate its three-dimensional shape, and “2″ to the fact that it can be flattened two-dimensionally. The single space denotes the time between the completion of the folded form and the moment someone puts it on, while “5″ signifies the concept’s multiple permutations.
132 5. Issey Miyake is set to debut in Japan this fall. (Ecouterre)
