With Fashion Week kicking off in New York, we’re curious to see if there will be anything as futuristic as these 3D printed couture designs. Dutch fashion designer, Iris van Herpen revealed her second 3D printed couture collection during Paris Haute Couture week for Spring/Summer 2011. The ‘Escapism’ line is a collaborative effort between the designer, architect, Daniel Wildrig, and 3D product innovators, .MGX by Materialise. The entire 3D printed collection was produced at Materialise and what’s most unique about the clothing is that each white item is comprised of polyamide using a selective laser sintering process, while the black pieces are also 3D printed in polyamide but finished in black lacquer.
