3D Printed Couture Takes Top Prize At The Dutch Design Awards
The stunning collection by conceptual designer Iris van Herpen provides a glimpse at the future of fashion.
Conceptual Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen‘s 3D printed collection ‘Voltage’ has taken the top prize in the Dutch Design Awards‘ best fashion category. The collection, which was shown during Paris Fashion Week earlier this year, features two garments made using additive manufacturing.
Iris van Herpen was also awarded the Golden Eye prizeÂ at the awards. She collaborated on the designs with architects Philip Beesley and Julia Koerner, and MIT Media Lab’s Neri Oxman. The jury commented:
With Voltage, Van Herpen gives the world a view into the future of fashion. It is impressive to see how she, at such a young age, succeeds in giving so much body to her work, without any loss of experiment and challenge. With her designs she shows better than anybody else what is going on in the Netherlands at the moment.
