An exception: Guinet spent a week carving bark and wood chips to make what's arguably his most striking piece in the collection, Wood, look like Nikes actually do grow on trees. Neon green laces bring the absurdity of the whole concept to life, contrasting Earth’s most perfect materials with the corporations that mine, repackage, and sell them back to us.<br /> <br /> Just Grow It, by French plant artist Christophe Guinet<br /> <br /> More info: <a href="http://www.fastcodesign.com/3037966/organic-nikes-made-from-flowers-and-bark?partner=rss#15">http://www.fastcodesign.com/3037966/organic-nikes-made-from-flowers-and-bark?partner=rss#15</a> Entfaltung - collapsible paper fashion by Jule Waibel tag:crafthaus.ning.com,2014-10-29:2104389:Video:498239 2014-10-29T14:26:20.965Z Brigitte Martin http://crafthaus.ning.com/profile/brigittemartin <a href="http://crafthaus.ning.com/video/entfaltung-collapsible-paper-fashion-by-jule-waibel"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="135" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/n9CkP9pTfMPC9xICSktoU4b10iRMjlZ6IJDBcNXCmzNWRoYUTmHNocw3lzq-5HYwTHVymlvJhMgKyzEuPx2M5GjAjl9texC9/1088686436.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=135" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Royal College of Art graduate Jule Waibel has designed a series of folded paper clothes and accessories including a dress that adjusts and expands as you move and a concertinaed handbag.<br></br> <br></br> Transforming simple sheet materials into three-dimensional objects, Waibel's project, called Entfaltung (unfold/expand/develop), features a yellow dress that… <a href="http://crafthaus.ning.com/video/entfaltung-collapsible-paper-fashion-by-jule-waibel"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/n9CkP9pTfMPC9xICSktoU4b10iRMjlZ6IJDBcNXCmzNWRoYUTmHNocw3lzq-5HYwTHVymlvJhMgKyzEuPx2M5GjAjl9texC9/1088686436.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=135" width="240" height="135" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Royal College of Art graduate Jule Waibel has designed a series of folded paper clothes and accessories including a dress that adjusts and expands as you move and a concertinaed handbag.<br /> <br /> Transforming simple sheet materials into three-dimensional objects, Waibel's project, called Entfaltung (unfold/expand/develop), features a yellow dress that changes its shape according to the movement of the body, a green expandable bag and an orange-coloured umbrella.<br /> <br /> "Collapsible structures reflect how our world is constantly changing," says designer Julie Waibel. "This project celebrates the beauty found between geometry, transformation and play."<br /> <br /> Waibel told Dezeen how she spent months folding and pleating different materials, such as shower curtains, leather and polymers. The final structures are made from Tyvek, a lightweight, waterproof and tear-proof synthetic paper. The coloured gradient is printed on to the paper before it is folded.<br /> <br /> "I got inspired by Mary Poppins and her magical handbag," Waibel told Dezeen. "Everything seems to fit inside: a mirror, a hatstand, a plant and more."<br /> <br /> Waibel completed the project whilst studying on Platform 18 of the Royal College of Art's Design Products course, led by Sarah van Gameren and Philippe Malouin. She presented it at Show RCA 2013 last month.<br /> <br /> See more images of Jule Waibel's collapsible fashion items on Dezeen:<br /> <a href="http://www.dezeen.com/2013/07/24/entfaltung-fashion-by-jule-waibel">http://www.dezeen.com/2013/07/24/entfaltung-fashion-by-jule-waibel</a><br /> <br /> See more architecture and design movies at: dezeen.com/movies MEN OF THE CLOTH Trailer tag:crafthaus.ning.com,2014-10-16:2104389:Video:496751 2014-10-16T12:54:30.448Z Brigitte Martin http://crafthaus.ning.com/profile/brigittemartin <a href="http://crafthaus.ning.com/video/men-of-the-cloth-trailer"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="135" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/-3i3rVffQH0fUDCoMLK14Z8ZQX7HaejTrepNhnyNp3nR4jDTlooVNFUL-WS0elF25RU-ZyTIhOSDAu6tKzSKgSzbIE6VWCVe/1086701370.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=135" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Men of the Cloth is an inspiring portrait of three Italian master tailors who confront the decline of the apprentice system as they navigate their challenging roles in the twilight of their careers.

Directed by Vicki Vasilopoulos, the film unravels the mystery of their artistry and reveals how their passionate devotion to their Old World craft is akin to a religion.<br /> <br /> Italians Nino Corvato, Joe Centofanti, and Checchino Fonticoli are master tailors who have spent a lifetime perfecting the skills necessary to construct flawless custom-made suits for their clients in New York City, Philadelphia, and Penne, Italy, a fascinating process broken down step-by-step in Men of the Cloth. Now, they fear that their Old World knowledge will vanish with them. Enter Joe Genuardi, a tailoring apprentice who reflects the resurgence of popular interest in artisanal craftsmanship as an alternative to corporate mass production, providing hope for the future of this craft.<br /> <br /> Men of the Cloth is structured like a triptych: each character’s story gives us an insight into the past, present, and future of the craft. The whir of the sewing machine, the clank of the steam iron, and the sharp slicing of the tailor’s scissors create an aural symphony. As they go about their daily tasks, they share observations that are, by turns, nostalgic, poignant, and humorous.<br /> <br /> Filmed over the course of eleven years, Men of the Cloth is a meditation on the value of handmade clothing.
