Andrew Burnstine – Retail Matters

Dutch couturier Iris van Herpen, a pioneer in 3D-printed garments, just said, “Yes to the Dress”, by creating the world’s first ever 3D printed wedding dress.

Van Herpen’s bridal gown has an otherworldly delicacy, the swarm of futuristic frost across the bodice and throat giving a solid appearance that belies its pliability and durability.

“There are no seams. You could not do this with a typical pattern,” said van Herpen, whose Amsterdam atelier logged 600 hours to realize the design, preceded by much tinkering with ZBrush, a digital sculpting software.

“This was really a dream project for me, because 3D-printed fashions are in museums, and on runways, but having it worn by someone on the most special day of her life, I think it’s really something else,” she said.
