3D Printing: The Face of Future Fashion?

Danit Peleg

Danit Peleg is a Fashion Designer and entrepreneur based in Tel Aviv, Israel. For her graduate collection at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Danit successfully 3D printed 5 outfits using solely home printers. Her collection captivated the attention of millions around the world.

Speaking at the upcoming Global Female Leaders 2016, the 3rd annual economic forum for female executives, Danit Peleg will focus on the Disruptive Technologies and Innovation theme where she will present her case for 3D Fashion Printing.

3D Printing and Fashion? When did you first come up with this idea and can you tell us something about your collection?

I went to Burning Man in Nevada last summer and saw amazing out-of-this-world outfits that were made with new technologies. Someone gifted me a 3D printed necklace using home printers and I got excited about it. That’s how I decided to research 3D printing clothes/fashion line from my home using home printers.

Just like a viral video, you could see a “viral t-shirt” that someone designed and that everyone is suddenly wearing

For my senior collection I decided to try and 3D print an entire fashion collection from my home. The problem was that I barely knew anything about 3D printing and I had only 9 months to figure out how to print 5 fashionable looks. I graduated 4 months ago from Shenkar fashion school and I made a video about my collection and it went viral and received almost 5 million views in a week’s span.

My inspiration was Eugène Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People. I modified it so it would look like a 3D picture. I was inspired to work with the many triangles present in the painting’s composition and the tricolors of the French flag, which are omnipresent in 3D glasses.
