Join Uyen Nguyen and Lea Freni for a conversation about their collaboration on origami fashion. Special for this Origami Connect Event, Nguyen will teach a circular origami corrugation whose pattern is inspired by the Fibonacci Skirt for VOGEL.
One square of 6" (15 cm) square sheet of paper and a pair of scissors.
Uyen Nguyen has been collaborating with Lea Freni for the 2016 Spring/Summer collection of VOGEL, an emerging contemporary womenswear brand that recently debuted at Vancouver Fashion Week. The collection is embedded with the latest research in origami mechanics, based on Nguyen's own designs and research at Cornell University's Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics. Uyen is a board member of OrigamiUSA.
