Jum Nakao–Papier Extraordinaire

He is a marvel in fashion design. The Brazilian-Japanese fashion designer created these magnificent designs out of paper! Yes you heard me right Paper. The Japanese have long been experts in the art of origami (paper folding) but these designs take that to another level. From 80s style puffed up sleeves to intricately designed full skirts, embroidery style garments and birdcage style skirts this collection has it all. This collection has a definite vintage feel to it and the designer teamed these wonderful creations with headwear reminiscent of a Lego figure to complete the ethereal look.

Jum Nakao works out of a workshop in Sao Paulo, Brazil and runs design workshops on a regular basis.
