On Monday, Dutch fashion designer, Iris van Herpen unveiled her Wilderness Embodied Collection at Paris Fashion Week. The new collection features 12 pairs of 3D printed shoes as well as her very first hybrid dress created using 3D printing technology.

This 3D printed hybrid dress from van Herpen was created by bringing together transparent stereolithography pieces and more hands-on craftsmanship, for an unworldly result.

According to Materialise, fine, bone-like pieces were first designed on a computer in collaboration with Isaie Bloch, a Belgian architect and CG artist. The 3D model was then optimized for 3D printing using Materialise software.

The dress was then brought to life on a Materialise's Mammoth Stereolithography using clear liquid resin. The transparent pieces were then over-moulded in silicon by Iris van Herpen's team, a process that demands great skill and which took weeks to complete.

"For the first time we have worked with Iris van Herpen to produce a hybrid creation incorporating unique, transparent bone-like structures produced with Mammoth Stereolithography.

"Thanks to 3D printing the dresses are seamless and made to measure. It is exciting working with Iris van Herpen to bring her complex geometrical designs to life; 3D printing does what no other form of clothing manufacture can do when complex shapes need to be created quickly and as one piece." says Sven Hermans, Account Manager for Materialise.
