Origami Tessellation dress by Romina Goransky

Cindy Ng

Romina Goransky, an origami teacher based in Buenos Aires, Argentina created this beautiful origami tessellation dress to wear for her brother's wedding. A ten day project, the dress was built using two pleated pieces and hand sewn using taffeta, which is a crisp, smooth plain woven fabric made from silk or synthetic fibers, which is also used to line clothing. Prior to sewing the pieces together, they created a treatment for the fabric by mixing glue and water so that the pleat would remain in its shape while the fabric was hand folded.

What a beautiful dress!
