3D-Printed Fashions Hit The Runway

Worlds of fashion and tech collided on April 16, 2015, during 3D Print Fashion Show, sponsored by the Materialise and curated by the Natacha Alpert, founder of 3D printing consulting firm MIRAS3D. Show featured unique and forward-thinking pieces that were completely customized and fetched high price tags. Held at Javits Convention Center in New York City, this event was part of a larger 3D Print Week, created by Alan Meckler of MecklerMedia. That show unveiled original pieces created by 3-D print designers from around the earth. Here is a glimpse of some of most innovative 3D-printed fashion designs and accessories.

Above: This black lace dress with 3D-printed chest piece was inspired by Sci-Fi/action movie Alien. Designer Rachel Nhan created 3-D prints and digital models in Autodesk Maya and then sewed the dress herself. The dress was printed at Shapeways.

Her set was inspired by the ocean, featuring items for instance a V-neck gown with over 5,000 crystals delicately woven into 3D-printed fabric, sparkling shoes that symbolize coral colonies and earrings to “encase you in the sweet murmurings of the sea.”

This white, 3D-printed headpiece is futuristic statement piece. When Sezen is not designing pieces that are entirely 3-D, she combines 3-D printing with traditional jewelry methods.
