Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen, in collaboration with architect Julia Koerner, has created a 3D printed dress inspired by the acrylic fronds of architect Philip Beesley's Holozolic Ground project.
Once again van Herpen has teamed up with Materialise and .MGX in the creation of a 3D printed dress , this time as part of her "Hybrid Holism" AW 2012/2013 collection.

The Hybrid Holism collection was inspired by architect Philip Beesley and his Holozolic Ground project, an immersive, interactive environment made of tens of thousands of lightweight digitally-fabricated components fitted with meshed microprocessors and sensors shown at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2010.
The dress, compared by a spectator to 'liquid honey', marks the third van Herpen collaboration with Materialise and .MGX.
