3D printed textile: Iris van Herpen and her clothes frozen in time

July 21, 2010

More and more I realize that  avant-garde fashion comes often  from Netherlands. From both a design and technological point of view, I have to admit that I am very often mesmerized by the creativity of this country.

This is the case of Iris van Herpen who made the first 3D printed fashion collection ever. This collection called “Crystallization” is the fruit of a collaboration with Daniel Widrig, designer and architect clearly interested in the so called “generated design”.

It appears  normal to me the necessity of such a collaboration when  we use digital technology in fashion. 3D print means that we don’t talk about  a plane anymore but rather about a tridimensional object. Then this requires a design made in a 3D environment with computational skills.

These collaboration can be seen as a foretaste of what fashion design may be tomorrow: a kind of laboratory where textile and fashion designers work with architects , engineers and scientists.

I’m really looking forward!!!
