The first collection of 3D-printed clothing has taken an entry into the market by unveiling it at the Jewish Museum in New York City. The dress looked ethereal and geometric. One dress was more catchy with angular bubbles that looked as if the model has emerged from a foamy bath.
However, the demerit of such 3D printed clothing line was found the model couldn’t sit down as the dress would shatter.
Print has taken next step in the clothing line and threeASFOUR is now taking a step into future.
The company dreamed in 2013 a 3D-printing textiles that were fireproof, pressure-resistant, bulletproof, or able to trap heat or cold.
Right now, if seen from the view of printing technology, the 3D printing technology is way away from practicality and the primary reason is that for thousands of years of refinement traditional weaving has been able to produce wearable, which is durable as well as more efficient.
For the threeASFOUR dream the project was different as the team has gone beyond the limit of clothing.
The 3D printing technology came in 2009 and by now it has taken many sectors in control. The idea itself to mess fabric’s third-dimension was not to be believed earlier. So threeASFOUR considered experimenting on most normal fabric that stretches both ways – along the x as well as y planes.
The threeASfOUR collaborated with Materialize, which is a 3D printing firm and in the Victoria’s Secret’s 2013 fashion show had created 3D printed wings.
In the current design it is learned the audience and jury found the dress beyond imagination.
However, it was a work of creative and pain too that paves the way to engage such print materials more in fashionable dresses.
