3D Printing Fashion

Good Afternoon.

Today the post is more unusual and personal.  Three weeks ago I have presented my Major Project- my App concept idea to my tutors. Later that day, I have submitted all of my documents, essays, posters etc.  Tada. It's all finish. 1 final major project, 1 Dissertation, 11 modules, 100 mental breakdowns and 3673 tears later I ready for my graduation on the 12th of July ... 4 years of best/ worst days of Uni is over... 
Today with my post I want to share with you all the idea about my project and all the upsides and downsides. Let's start with the idea themselves and the possibility of creating something so unique was a great challenge. The project initial hypothesis is about hybrid interaction which contributes to a personalisation of the fabricated object and the impact on the design concept.  . Thus, supporting the exploration of the digital fabrication approach, introducing craft qualities into the digital domain. 
"Growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown." A flurry of new exciting technologies is signalling the birth of a new medium, not yet completely understood, not yet fully imagined. There is a conviction, that anyone dreaming about a particular model of the garment should be able to materialise it on a computer screen in the near future....
University was a great place to let me experiment and create something different. A future shaped by algorithm, generative data and 3D printing technology is having a revolutionary impact on design. I have collaborated with a company called Materialise with printing the dress at "one go" with no additional assembly using material TPU 91A and SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) Method. My bestie who is a 3D designer helped me with designing the dress using Marvellous Designer and 3D's Max and Zbrush Software. I was really inspired by people like Iris Van Harper, threeASFOUR and Nervous System. There is also an amazing exhibition happening in the New York Manus x Machina Exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Fashion and technology are merging into one hybrid element which is all about designing the future fashion experiences. This is why I called my project "Hybrid Fabrics" Thinking about what it is that we want to do and achieve, where we wish to take our craft or what creative milestones challenge us the most"Design is a type of communication about the way object or idea speaks to its audience. Good design not only gets its message across but engages in conversation.” (Kinfolk, 2016)

Isn’t it strange that we talk least about the things we think about most?
