German designer Jule Waiber was commissioned by famous fashion brand Bershka to create 25 paper origami dresses for 25 different cities in order to be displayed in the windows of the flagship stores.

Origami is the Japanese art of folding paper. In this case, the designer hand pleats big sheets of paper in order to fit the womans’ body. Each dress requires over 10 hours of working progress while each one of these dresses include designs and colors that represent each city avoiding stereotype motifs and prints. Waiber and her team managed to complete the project of the 25 dresses in 8 days at their studio in Barcelona.

The exhibition of the dresses takes place in major urban centers such as Paris, London, Istanbul, Milan and Berlin and will be installed until the 31st of January.
