Interview with Issey Miyake's Yoshiyuki Miyamae on 3D stretch seam fashion technology

"It looks like origami but it's folded by steam, not by hand," said Miyamae. "It's not created by a mould or pre-formed or anything, everything is woven from scratch – from yarn into fabric."
3D Steam Stretch fabric, which has been tested to prove that it withstands constant wear and washing, is used for garments in Issey Miyake's Spring Summer 2015 womenswear collection shown during Paris fashion week in September.
