New York Fashion Week   Origami by Kevin SAER Leong Spring/Summer 2012

Designer Kevin “SAER” Leong had his debut fashion show this past Wednesday, September 7th, during New York’s Fashion Week. Origami, his private label collection inspired by Chinese culture and the label’s namesake art of paper folding, was shown on the runway at the Samsung Experience in the Time Warner Center. The Origami Spring/Summer 2012 line centered around innovation and sustainability, as the some of the unisex pieces were built with DuPont Tyvek recyclable fabrication and insulated with shredded U.S. currency. One standout, the Origami Money Vest, was filled with approximately $1,000. Models walked on a runway made from DuPont synthetic grass, while Bravo Media provided projection mapping that made the show an interactive affair. Check out images from the unique event after the jump.

This brand has been on the working for years and there is a reason why it's not in store. The designer is overated. Too much hyped. Gimmick design. Look more like a school project. The shredded money vest is nothing new in the collection.

Smells like something someone would come up with just to try and be apart of the fashion industry..... unfortunately it has nothing new or exciting to offer.

I've been hearing about this line for a while, and was very excited to see it finally come out. Unfortunately it is a complete dissappointment. A couple little gimmicks thrown in but bad and boring design. Uninspired at best. Next time.let the work talk and leave the hype machine behind. sorry but this is a fail, wanted to like it but can't

No need to discard the mini-skirt from time to time at any age – they look great with tights and boots – but for most Boomers, on the road to pick up the kids and grandparents feel unqualified for office
