This week we’ve been sharing some of our favorite fashion moments in honor of New York Fashion Week – from the outcome of the Computational Fashion class to industry moments we won’t forget to amazing things our community is doing.
Today we’re taking a look back at some of the 3D printed fashion moments we’ve had a part in. Below are some of our favorite pieces that have come from the Shapeways factory:
Victoria’s Secret Snow Angels
Seen walking down the annual Victoria’s Secret runway show in December 2013, we helped create the Snow Angel wings 3D modeled by Bradley Rothenberg. The corset and wings were designed to look like fractal snowflakes and were adorned with thousands of Swarovski crystals.
Nervous System creates the first wearable 3D printed dress
We talked about the Dita dress in an earlier post this week, but we certainly can’t leave out the amazing dress Nervous System created last year. Using Kinematics, their 4D printing system that creates complex, foldable forms, the designers created a wearable dress that prints in one single folded piece.
Computational Fashion Master Class
For two years, Eyebeam and Shapeways have come together to put on the Computation Fashion Master Class. Taken by designers, engineers, architects (and more), this class explores the world of fashion as it relates to new and emerging technologies. Recently, the 2015 class presented their projects at the opening of ReMaking Patterns.
Vogue sends Karlie Kloss (scans) around the world
Last year, we partnered with Vogue to send supermodel, Karlie Kloss, around the world for their famous September issue. After being scanned in various outfits, we printed out the mini Karlie’s in our factory before they were sent around the world and photgraphed for the story. While lighthearted, this project explored how 3D scanning can be used to capture beautiful moments.
