CTRL + P: A User's Guide to 3D Printed Fashion | SSENSE | COOL 3DPRINTING | Scoop.it



Exploring the evolution of 3D printing, and how it stands to revolutionize the way we perceive and understand fashion.


3D printing stands to revolutionize the way we understand fashion, and here at SSENSE, we look forward to the day when we can introduce luxury fashion printable directly from your desktop.


Fancy printing out that Saint Laurent bag, those Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers, or an Alexander Wang t-shirt? So do we. In the meantime, we’ve looked into the technology, key players, and hard numbers to offer you a guide to the intricate world of 3D printed fashion.


How it works

3D printing employs an additive process: layers of material are laid down successively until the desired shape is created.


This allows you to make virtually any shape or object, moving parts and all - even a working gun or a fully-functional camera can be 3D printed.


Selective laser sintering (SLS) is the main process used for small-scale objects like jewelry, accessories, and clothing - the things we care about.


Layer by layer, a polyamide powder made from particles of raw material is turned into the desired object. SLS is the method preferred by proponents of 3D printed fashion: it’s used by everyone from eyewear label MYKITA to designer Francis Bitoni and Dutch couturier Iris van Herpen, whose Spring 14 collection arrives at SSENSE this season.


As for the materials, products can be produced in everything from nylon or plaster to ceramic and metal.


Soft materials like TPU or elastomer polymer can also produce flexible products. “In most cases we are doing something no one has done, with a new material no one has worked with before,” Bitoni, the designer behind the world’s first 3D printed dress, explains.


We are transforming matter into media.” He’s right – the range of materials is evolving every day.

Futuristic Fashion: More Designers Using 3-D Printing to Create Clothing, Accessories

Futuristic Fashion: More Designers Using 3-D Printing to Create Clothing, Accessories | COOL 3DPRINTING | Scoop.it

Is the sewing machine on its way to becoming a thing of the past?

Recently, 3-D-printed articles of clothing and accessories have become increasingly popular, and it seems as if this unique method of creating could one day replace the sewing machine as the favored tool among fashion designers.

When the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show aired last Tuesday night, those watching it might have noticed an outfit worn by American model Lindsay Ellingson that consisted of a corset, bustle and arm pieces that were designed to look like snowflakes and created using a 3-D printer. British beauty Cara Delevingne also donned a pair of computer-generated angel wings during the show.

Prior to that, 3-D printing was also used on an episode of "Project Runway" when a contestant created printed belts. Dutch designer Iris van Herpen also recently showed a 3-D-printed collection called Voltage. Additionally, Neiman Marcus now sells items from Shapeways, a 3-D marketplace, on its website.

Bradley Rothenberg, the architect wo collaborated with Victoria's Secret to create the 3-D garments worn by Ellingson and Delevingne, said this emerging technology has the potential to change the way in which clothing is made and how it fits.

"Clothing can be custom and even specific to your body," Rothenberg told the New York Times.

"The other advantage for 3-D printing with textiles is the level of complexity. When you think of constructing with a sewing machine, you're always thinking in terms of the thread. With 3-D printing you're not limited to that. Imagine having a knit sweater mixed with a T-shirt mixed with a jacket," he added.

Another added benefit to using 3-D printing techniques is that they speed up the process in which shoppers can get their hands on hot items.

"The technology allowed me to revolutionize the timeline," said fashion designer Kimberly Ovitz, who enlisted help from Shapeways to design rings and other accessories to complement her women's clothing line.

"People could look at my jewelry on the runway and get it in two weeks. And they could customize the material and color."

3D-printed fashion: off the printer, rather than off the peg

3D-printed fashion: off the printer, rather than off the peg | COOL 3DPRINTING | Scoop.it


Latest collection by Iris van Herpen shows that new 3D-printing technology is heading for the catwalk, and eventually the high street


The most eye-catching prints in fashion aren't florals or leopardskin but printouts. Fantastical 3D-printed designs created by a pulsed laser that layers powdered rubbers or metals into a shape calculated by computers.

These creations, by Dutch designer Iris van Herpen, are the first created with 3D printing to grace the catwalk. They're loved by the likes of Lady Gaga and Bjork, but have implications for your wardrobe too. While this manufacturing technique – originally developed for engineers – has history in jewellery and shoe design, the possibilities for the clothing industry are tantalising. It could revolutionise garment sizing and product development in mass production. It could also allow startup labels to produce small orders to avoid unsold stock, and allow easy customisation.

All this is possible, but for now 3D-printing fashion has pragmatic problems to address. Though van Herpen's collection featured a printable fabric that is flexible, durable and can even be bunged in the washing machine, most items produced with this technique are unforgivingly stiff synthetics. Great for Gaga's stage show, not so practical for the school run. Printing costs are also still prohibitively high.

While fashion has never been an industry to fret about cost, high-end style usually involves hand-finished, artisinal craftsmanship and natural materials such as silk and leather. For "tech couture" to evolve from a niche trend, there'll have to be a radical rethink of the definition of luxury fashion. The idea that manipulating code to make clothes fit the human form is a new couture skill may take designers and their ateliers of seamstresses some time to get their heads around. But that idea – that wearing a 3D-printed outfit is as close as we can currently get to wearing code – is an intriguing one.

New Shoes – 3D Printed

New Shoes – 3D Printed | COOL 3DPRINTING | Scoop.it


More shoe designers are experimenting with 3D printing, and they are all collaborating with imaterialise to produce their footwear.


Granted they’re not your everyday, throw on pairs. But for anyone with a shoe fettish (that would be me, and I KNOW there are others!) they are captivating and produce involuntary ooo’s and aaaah’s …. You may have noticed that original shoes are a guilty pleasure of mine, 2nd only to hats, even though, these days, I’m not sure I could successfully wear them, and by successful, I mean not fall over and embarrass myself!


The shoes in the gallery below come from Katrien Herdewyn, who, it seems is an extremely busy lady — as well as working on her PhD in Physics, she is also studying Shoe Design at the Academy of Fine Arts, Sint-Niklaas (SASK). Her shoes are largely experimental, but she says of her work: “The main theme of these shoes is nano technology.


The inspiration came from my studies: I studied electrical engineering, material sciences and nanotechnology at the University of Leuven.”

3D printed shoes by Katrien Herdewyn nominated for MUUSE x ...

3D printed shoes by Katrien Herdewyn nominated for MUUSE x ... | COOL 3DPRINTING | Scoop.it


We are excited to announce that the partially 3D printed shoes designed by Katrien Herdewyn, modelled by Frederik Bussels and produced by i.materialise, have been nominated for the MUUSE x Vogue Talents Young Vision Accessories Award 2014.


Take a look, and cast your vote for Katrien and her shoes on the Vogue website.


Being a student in Shoe Design in Belgium while also working on her PhD in electrical engineering, material sciences and nanotechnology, Katrien decided to blur the line between these fields and started experimenting with 3D printing in her shoe designs. She commissioned her first experiment back in February 2013 and it seems to have been an inspired choice.


“I am extremely excited about my nomination for the Muuse x Vogue Talents – Young Vision Award for Accessories. I worked very hard on this collection and I was very happy when I heard I was one of the selected designers. With my background in engineering, I try and combine new technologies with traditional craftsmanship. I believe this is where the future lies. 3D printing offers so many possibilities; you can do anything you can imagine.


But when it comes to shoes, a designer always has to take into account that you have to be able to wear and walk in the shoe. I want to design shoes that are high tech and high fashion at the same time. And progressing in this competition would mean a tremendous boost for my shoe designing career and fulfilling my dream.”


Katrien Herdewyn

LOOK: 3D Printed Shoes Are Real

LOOK: 3D Printed Shoes Are Real | COOL 3DPRINTING | Scoop.it


Forget that trip to the shoe store. Why not just have your computer make your footwear for you?


That's the basic idea behind Finnish shoe designer Janne Kyttanen's latest project. He's released a collection of shoes that can be assembled by a 3D printer, Mashable reports. Customers can download the blueprints for Kyttanen's designs then make them on their own 3D printer, a fairly new technology that can create 3-dimensional objects from specified materials based off of digital models.


Of course, 3D printing remains a relatively rare technology, with home models retailing over $1,000, so using a 3D printing service like Cubify might be a better option, according to Mashable.


Or check out one particular UPS in San Diego that began offering 3D printing services around a month ago to help you render one of Kyttanen's designs.

3D Printing Hits Fashion

3D Printing Hits Fashion | COOL 3DPRINTING | Scoop.it
The word “printing” probably conjures up images of 8.5 x 11 paper jammed in a malfunctioning machine.
But not for long.  As 3D printing becomes more mainstream, its applications are broadening.

Architects and scientists have been using 3-D printing to create models for decades, but it’s beginning to show even more potential. From 3D printed buildings to 3D printed hearing aids, this technology could be revolutionary for a variety of industries.

Fashion is no exception, and designers have already started to experiment.
Companies such as Hot Pop Factory are printing jewelry. Retailers such as New Balance are printing shoes. Designers such as Ron Arab are printing sunglasses.
These pioneering innovations are exciting, but what’s a 3D printed necklace without a shirt or dress to match? 3D Printing and Fashion just recently met a couple of years ago, but their friendship is off to a promising start.
