Transformable Textiles 

As the name suggest, these textiles or garments will change shape from one to another. Design by Langdi Lin suggest that the body movement can be used to interact with the garment and fabric and create a movement that might be artistic.  Origami constructed textiles can be folded together to create a material transformation.

This concept is interesting especially if it was put into use for functional features in micro size to enable the garment better properties or different properties.
