For her graduation project Danit Peleg spent 2000 hours at home printing out an entire collection of clothing.
“I have always been interested in the influence of technology on fashion design. For all my projects I develop my own textiles and experiment with various technologies, whether it is laser cutting, screen-printing, or 3D printing.”
“I decided to work with 3D printing, which I barely knew anything about. I wanted to check if it’d be possible to create an entire garment using technology accessible to anyone.”
Her results are remarkable mesh creations that are pliable, and even bouncy.
“The breakthrough came when I was introduced to FilaFlex, which is a new kind of filament; it’s strong, yet very flexible.”
For the final collection even the shoes were printed. If Peleg’s goal was to democratize high fashion then she’s succeeded, as this unique collection can conceivably be printed out by anyone with a 3D printer and the right ink.
