Dutch designer Iris van Herpen’s ‘Voltage’ Haute Couture show featured fashion 3D printed by Stratasys and Materialise.

Dutch designer Iris van Herpen‘s Haute Couture show ‘Voltage' at Paris Fashion Week featured two 3D printed designs created in collaboration with Stratasys and Materialise. One was a black dress designed with Austrian architect Julia Koerner and 3D printed by Materialise.

The other, a skirt and cape, were created with artist and professor Neri Oxman from MIT's Media Lab and 3D printed by Stratasys using their unique Objet Connex multi-material technology. This allows a variety of material properties to be printed at once, so hard and soft materials can both be incorporated into the same design. Van Herpen said:
