The same post at Quomodocumque has this completely odd video of an interview with William Thurston and fashion designer Dai Fujiwara. Apparently, Thurston provided the inspiration for Issey Miyake’s fall fashions, “8 Geometry Link Models as Metaphor of the Universe”.

You can see the finale of their Paris fashion show here, including Thurston joining Fujiwara on stage. (The whole thing didn’t seem real to me until I saw Thurston walk on-stage in that clip. I have no idea what the designs have to do with the Geometrization Conjecture, but the title of the show certainly suggests that’s what they had in mind.)

The proof of the Geometrization Conjecture was sketched by Perelman (it implies the Poincare Conjecture). I wonder if the brief burst of publicity in the wake of Perelman led to the show.
