When fashion meets technology, you can wear your tweets
from The New York Times
The Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen, in her 2010 collection "Crystallization," was the first person to send a 3-D-printed haute couture garment down the runway. A top assembled from nine scalloped, shell-like sections cantilevered over the model's shoulders and chest, like a futuristic shield. That high-tech piece, printed layer by layer from polyamide, is one of many being presented as wearable sculpture in 'Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion," through May 15 at the High Museum in Atlanta.
