Iris van Herpen Ready-to-Wear at Paris Fashion Show
Van Herpen has attracted attention from the tech world for her experiments with 3-D printed designs. Her 3D-printed dresses made Time magazine's top 50 inventions of 2011 and her collection has been the subject of an exhibition at the Groninger Museum in Groningen, the Netherlands. As Smart Planet explains:
Her process begins by sketching clothes via Photoshop instead of on paper, and then she collaborates with engineers at the Belgian additive manufacturing company Materialise –whose other collaborators tend to be biomedical, orthopedic, and industrial companies.
