Time to rethink design.

No more flat 2D patterns here!

For a long time now, we have wanted to feature designer

Iris van Herpen

3D fashion design is her specialty.

One of her fully 3D printed collections was Escapism. She collaborated with London architect Daniel Widrig and digital manufacturers .MGX by Materialise to create a collection of digitally printed clothing.

No Sewing or Seams here.
