UCLA Professor uses 3D Printing for fashion designs
UCLA Professor, Joanna Berzowska, has been using 3D printing technology to create innovative and sustainable fashion designs. Berzowska’s designs are inspired by nature, and she uses 3D printing to create intricate and organic textures and shapes that would be difficult to achieve through traditional methods. She also uses recycled materials in her designs, making them more environmentally friendly. Berzowska believes that 3D printing technology can revolutionize the fashion industry by allowing designers to create custom designs quickly, efficiently, and with greater detail. Her work showcases the creative possibilities of 3D printing in fashion and highlights the potential for sustainable fashion practices.
According to ucla.edu/news,” UCLA faculty member Julia Koerner, whose 3D printed designs were featured in the movie Black Panther, which was recently recognized with a 2019 Academy Award for Best Costume Design. Koerner is a Los Angeles-based Austrian architect and the founder of JK Design GmbH. She has won many awards for her work at the convergence of architecture, product, and fashion design – specializing in additive manufacturing and robotic technology. In 2015, Julia launched an entirely 3D-Printed ready-to-wear collection entitled ‘Sporophyte.’ Her collaborations involved 3D-Printed fashion pieces developed with Haute Couture Houses for Paris Fashion Week and 3D-printed costumes for Hollywood entertainment productions such as Marvel’s Black Panther in collaboration with Ruth Carter. Most recently, she collaborated with Swarovski on a showpiece that displays Swarovski’s continued to strive for innovation and the early developments of 3D-printing technology with glass.”
