German designer Jule Waibel has created a set of 25 dresses, all for Bershka flagship stores in different cities. Jule creates her dresses in the style of origami, starting with a large sheet of paper and hand-pleating it into forms and shapes that fit the body, and create a nice pattern for the dress. Each turn can take as long as 10 hours; with attention like this, no wonder the dresses look amazing.
Canadian artist Jobe Brown works with paper to create what he calls 3D Origami. His creations include several popular characters from a wide interest range. There are quite a few Pokemon in the set, Hedwig makes an appearance with the golden snitch, but we are particularly fond of the cute Iron Man you see at top.

Honolulu, Hawaii based artist Won Park creates these incredible origami pieces using just a dollar bill. Usual origami sheets are square, but the dollar bills of course are rectangular and may not generally be considered as suitable for origami. Park worked around that, and infact used it to his advantage in creating these wonderful pieces without the use of glue, cuts or tape.
Locusts are bad news, but this is one swarm everybody would want to be visited by. In an attempt to capture “money’s full hypnotic ambivalence” artist Sipho Mabona has created a swarm of giant locusts, all made from uncut US currency notes. We love greenbacks flying straight towards our pockets.
