Li-Rong Liao is an expert on folding and i will be the first to admit i wasn’t even aware that anything could look this good by way of folding.
she creases and folds and bends all sorts of things, but in this post i want to focus on her fashion designs: this piece is called the folded dress. it was first based off of a furniture design she created and then adapted to fit a human body. it’s made of Tyvek — a strong material that is lighweight and is being used by an increasing number of fashion designers today.
right now, there are only two pieces in her collection. the second piece is a folded purse.
Liao is a mathematician and is inspired by the beauty and simplicity of numbers. she is the daughter of a seamstress – she credits this as one of the main reasons she was able to discover her creativity at such a young age.
