Grskovic says, "I make some stylistic cuts depending on the mood that the image projects to me, which is essentially a projection of myself onto the image. It’s an anonymous collaboration.

Nintai: Origami-Inspired Geometric Dresses

Nintai: Origami-Inspired Geometric Dresses These dresses were created by Uruguay based designers Mercedes Arocena and Lucia Benitez for their thesis project. During their research about generations of civilizations they discovered that most garments were built out of rectangles and squares. That lead them to creating this line, "Nintai"--patience in Japanese, which utilizes geometrical figures as the basis of development for these origami-inspired dresses. Their collection uses the aspects of origami such as folding, creasing and building of the structures out of rectangles and patterns without the use of paper.
