The collection features sculptural, origami-like shapes, whether it’s in a helmet-inspired headpiece or intricate, faceted textured skirts. To truly be able to highlight the architectural-like, full blown nature of the collection, Erik photographed and created dye transfer prints to “make the images look like paper cutouts.”
