3D FASHION

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston showcased its #techstyle exhibition in April which showcased an array of technologically advanced fashion-meets-art displays. Included in the exhibition was Anthozoa, a 3D printed cape and skirt designed by Professor Neri Oxman and Iris van Herpen, and the Harmonograph 3D printed dress designed by threeASFOUR and Travis Fitch.

“I think one of the most amazing aspects of 3D printing is that it enables the fashion designer to move beyond conventional sketching and draping methods and allows them to imagine and conceive a garment in three dimensions,” said Michelle Finamore, Penny Vinik Curator of Ashion Arts at MFA.

Anthozoa was featured at Paris Fashion Week in 2013 as part of Iris van Herpen’s Haute Couture show.
