3D printing continues to push the fashion envelope so it’s no surprise it could create such beautiful ruffled clothing influenced by distorted grid patterns. One designer who took the reigns of such an idea is Israeli designer Noa Raviv with her ‘Hard Copy Collection’ shown here. Printed + stitched lines + grids were applied onto fabrics to evoke images of corrupted 3D drawings, made using computer modelling software.
Grid-like patterns are warped + stretched across parts of the garments to create optical illusions across the body. But to create the feeling of floating swirls around the body + making that 3D effect really pop, tulle + silk organza fabrics were chosen, in black, white + sheer tones. These fabrics were then layered, ruffled + pleated into voluminous shapes, sometimes edged in bright orange, for that burst of color. ’I chose the materials that had the most innovative look + the ones that I thought would best fit,’ Raviv explained to dezeen.
