Dutch designer Iris van Herpen has been known to use technology to push the fashion world into the future--a crazy future full of 3-D printed designs that look more like architecture than clothing.
Her latest collection brings 3-D printing to Paris Fashion Week. For VOLTAGE, van Herpen collaborated with 3-D printing manufacturers, an architect and a professor from MIT's Media Lab. Her multi-material skirt-and-cape combo and a lacy dress made using laser sintering launch high fashion into a whole new dimension.
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
