3D打印时装秀 灵感来自大自然


When you think about it, the fashion and tech industries aren't so different. Both create products that people use daily, follow extremely fickle trends and insist upon remaining on the cutting edge.
It's unsurprising, then, that the two worlds would eventually collide. While tech has been a presence in the fashion industry for years, it's only been in the past two that 3D printing has cropped up as a way for designers to rethink their process. This year, Belgium-based 3D printing company Materialise approached fashion designer Melinda Looi, who has won numerous awardsfor her experimental designs, to design a collection for Asia's first 3D-printed fashion show.

"Creating fashion with technology has always been something I wanted to do," Looi told Fast Company. "The collaborative effort involving people from different fields and backgrounds truly reminded me that exciting and beautiful things happen when art and technology meet."
With the help of Materialise and a few engineers, Looi designed a collection inspired by birds, consisting of winged accessories and patterns that echo natural forms. Designing, printing and fitting the collection took a long time, but once it was complete, the team presented their work in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The visionaries behind the collection have stated that none of the pieces are actually meant to be worn, but rather to show that fashion and tech can work harmoniously. Still, we think these 3D-printed wedges are pretty fierce.
