2D Meets 3D | Noa Raviv Graduate Collection Vanichi 03/09/2014 In its way, fashion has always been a type of technology. To devise the construction of a garment that can cover a form as complex and dynamic as the human body is a feat of engineering as well as artistry. This is especially true when the clothing is beautiful in and of itself. With this is mind, the new possibilities that arise from the intersection of 2D fashion and 3D Printing can be endless. Tel Aviv-based designer Noa Raviv is making this evident with her recent Graduate collection. The line is inspired by Classical Greek sculpture and the idea of mass produced beauty and expression. Once considered the ideal of beauty, Classical Greek forms became overly reproduced until their beauty became empty symbols of style. Utilizing 3D software, Raviv deliberately distorted digital images that do not exist in the natural world. The result: Raviv created her own textiles and shapes with the 3D parts via Stratasys’ Objet Connex500 multi-material 3D printing technology. The designs push the boundaries between the real and virtual and between the unique and the mass produced. Discover more at Noa Raviv’s online space.
