"Materialise" Dress by Iris van Herpen
by Ted Savage / January 24, 2013
Digital fabrication moves high fashion into mission-otherwise-impossible territory with creations like the "Materialise" Dress by Iris van Herpen, one of two 3D-printed outfits in the Dutch designer's VOLTAGE collection at this month's Paris Fashion Week.

Van Herpen teamed with architect Julia Koerner, using Materialise selective laser sintering gear, to realize, according to Koerner, "a highly complex, parametrically generated, geometrical structure [superimposing] multiple layers of thin woven lines which animate the body in an organic way." The laser sintering process fused powdered feedstock into an intricate, lace-like result not possible by any other method. So much for...needle and thread. Via Core77.
