How I 3D-Printed a 5-piece fashion collection at home
(July 28, 2015) In September 2014 I started working on my graduate collection for my Fashion Design degree at Shenkar.
This year, I decided to work with 3D printing, which I barely knew anything about. I wanted to check if it'd be possible to create an entire garment using technology accessible to anyone.
So I embarked on my 3D printing journey, without really knowing what the end result would be.
My inspiration was Eugène Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People. I modified it so it would look like a 3D picture. I was inspired to work with the many triangle present in the painting's composition.
The first piece I focused on was the "LIBERTE" jacket. I modeled the jacket using a software called Blender and produced 3D files; I could now start to experiment with different materials and printers.
