Origami Fashion in Roppongi Hills

SNA (Tokyo) — The Embassy of the Republic of Colombia in Tokyo surprised shoppers on the mild summer evening of June 14, 2014, with a fashion show featuring models wearing dresses and other accessories inspired by Japanese origami.

The artists responsible for the show were Diana Gamboa, the creator of the origami dresses, and Luis Fernando Bohorquez, who added the sculptures used in the performance. Most of the music used in the performance had its origins in the traditions of Colombia.

The meaning of the performance, the audience was told, was to express a love story between a man and a woman.
