Jum Nakao--Paper Fashion

Okay, I know this has been flying around blogs this week, but I love this work and it's all made out of PAPER! Jum Nakao documents the activities of a dressmaking workshop during the São Paulo Fashion Week in 2004, where Nakao presented a fashion show performance in which models wore designs made with vegetable paper constructed using digital technology and hand-made pieces. The following video clips show a glimpse of Nakao's creative process during this project, from his initial concept to the finished designs and the Paris fashion show. Watch the two following videos for more info!
