3D printed garment by Daniel Widrig in collaboration with Iris Herpen


3D printed garment by Daniel Widrig in collaboration Iris Herpen


Crystallization

20th July 2010

Fashion designer Iris van Herpen showcased the first (i think!) fully 3d printed garment during Amsterdam International fashion week.

Working in collaboration with designer/architect Daniel Widrig it took many hours and cost thousands of dollars to make. Is this the beginning of future couture?

Alongside her 3d printed garment she showed highly considered and technical garments using materials that seemed to blend between hard and fluid.

Looking as if they were frozen in time her materials offered up garments that were sometimes wearable and sometimes not.

‘I’m fascinated by the fact that secret lines are hidden in fully transparent and fluid materials. At the moment this material freezes (when the crystal arises) this comes to life. It’s then that the symmetry and structure underneath become visible’, Iris explained to Peter Stigter.
