|Sandra Backlund SS 2010 Collection|
Nowadays, fashion designers use this technique into their creations. This particular technique is definitely not that easy to be implemented, especially for garment that meant to be worn. Few years ago, John Galliano and his team travelled to Japan for inspiration hunting trip and found origami as one among other inspiration sources for Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring 2007 Collection. Though John Galliano maybe not the first person to make such dresses, but he probably is the pioneer who constructs origami-inspired fashion with garment as materials.

Next is one of our favorite designers that able to implement the origami technique in a very exquisite way is Swedish designer, Sandra Backlund. She mentioned her interest in almost every traditional handicraft method and had done a lot of experiment with many different materials and techniques until she finds it is her three-dimensional collage knitting that is most significant.
