An Exhibition of Paper designs

Ever since my visit to japan, I have been fascinated by the art of origami and paper designs, so when I received an invitation to the opening of the Pratt's School of Art and Design  exhibition of paper design at the Ralph Pucci showroom, I braved the crowded subways, the freezing cold as this is the show I would not miss.

50 Pratt students from various disciplines, fashion design, fine arts, industrial design and interior design were competing  for the best garment designs and top sculpture design. Student spent a semester studying texture and form to dress Pucci's Spring 2011 mannequins.
Thanks to my I phone, I'll share my favorites creations (please forgive the mediocre images..). My very talented friend Antoine Bootz photographed the exhibition, can't wait to see the photos.

The winner! Just think the hours spent drawing and laser cutting the paper
