Origami dresses by Jule Waibel



German designer Jule Waibel has created 25 of her folded paper dresses for fashion brand Bershka's shop windows around the world. Jule Waibel produces the dresses by hand-pleating large sheets of paper into forms that fit the body. Each takes over ten hours to complete.




Waibel scores the paper horizontally and vertically before folding along the seams, then repeats the process for the diagonal. The two halves of the sheet are printed with a different pattern, one for the bodice and the other for the skirt. Most of the dresses are printed with colour gradients, while a few are covered with detailed patterns. Different colours and graphics were used for each of the cities, but Waibel was keen to move away from stereotypical shades and motifs such as the ones used in the countries' flags.
