Piloting in a new era of fashion 3-D printing, designer Julia Daviy debuted on Sept. 6 2018 at The Fashion Meet Technology NYFW event a wearable collection of 3-D printed fashion.
Previous 3-D printed pieces released by designers are known for hard materials, with ultra-sophisticated designs that cannot be worn for anything other than photo shoots, on the runway, or fashion publicity events.
Daviy’s collection is distinctive in the fact that the pieces are not chunky, too futuristic or unusual.
Her 3-D printed fashion collection is the first ever to be released within the U.S. that not only uses the technology of large printing format but also displays a true everyday clothing look that is functional, delicate and wearable for women.
ulia Daviy prints each piece of clothing in 2-4 parts using large-scale printing technology with the majority of her collection being printed on the industrial large-format FDM 3D printers using TPU materials.
Daviy also experiments with flexible resin and SLA technology which permits her to print complex design shapes easily with almost no post processing.
Daviy’s large printing format means a minimum of handwork and post-processing, with high-quality 3-D printed fashion.
The world’s first 3-D-printed lace skirt. Inspired by the shapes of coral reef and a skirt from one of the most popular looks from Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw.
Daviy’s first mission with 3-D printing has been to create a replacement for leather.
