Iris Van Herpen Uses 3-D Printing For The Win
Conceptual Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen—best known for her hyper-complex, sculptural wares—has won the top prize in the Dutch Design Awards’ fashion category. Her 3-D printed collection dubbed Voltage, which she showed in Paris last January, inspired the judges to award her the honor. “With Voltage, van Herpen gives the world a view into the future of fashion,” offered the festival’s jury. Looks like we have yet another indication that 3-D printing will play a significant role in the fashion industry of tomorrow—or even of today.
