Talk about a head turning little white dress! These stunning creations were put together for a thesis project by Uruguay-based designers, Mercedes Arocena and Lucia Benitez, and I’m going to go ahead and guess that they passed with flying colors. This collection, aptly named “Nintai” (the Japanese word for patience), required the duo to experiment with different fabrics to find one suitable for holding sharp creases while being pliable enough to be molded to the human form. Then they used origami techniques to painstakingly build nearly 200 geometric modules that were then attached to each dress. I’m really in awe of the final dresses, which seem surprisingly wearable despite their rigid structures!
