Beautiful! They are images from a book by Tomoko Nakamichi, Pattern Magic Vol.1. She's a professor at the Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo.

Here is Vol. 2 :(books.hounavi.com)

it's very architectural. I like that it fuses the gap between clothing and art.

I am fascinated by these cuts to create such voluminous 3-D masterpieces.

Are cuts like these meant to accentuate body parts? I can't imagine many of these being convenient to wear at all though they are still a wonder to look at.

I think they are the "origami" style taken to an extreme. Or perhaps origami style was a watered down version of it. I like that they don't rely on loud colours or prints to make the clothes interesting. The structure and lines are interesting by themselves and everything else is kept to a minimum.

But i think it's really more art than clothes. I would find it very impractical to work in those clothes.
