Shamekh Bluwi, an architect and fashion illustrator based in Amman, Jordan, creates beautiful paper cut-outs with women whose dresses become whatever you hold them up against.

Bluwi first got the inspiration for the idea during a trip to Dubai. Wanting to somehow incorporate his travel experiences into his fashion illustrations, he decided to capture the cities he visited by turning them into clothing designs. By holding the cutout against various landscapes, Bluwi can use a single template to create an infinite number of patterns ranging from water and sky to buildings and doorways. It’s smart, it’s resourceful, and it’s fantastically creative despite its simplicity.
