The Milan Design Week, an event hosting designers, architects, artists and guests from all over the world, has started today in Milan, Italy. During the event, you can see the unique fashion collection SSYS 2Y22 Reflection, created using the new Stratasys J850 TechStyle 3D printer. Created and supervised by Stratasys, it has been made possible by close collaboration with seven design groups and includes exclusive dresses and suits, handbags, footwear, casual wear, lighting, luxury packaging, cosmetics, and all sorts of fashion accessories.

Stratasys has partnered with Milan’s Dyloan and D-house, a leading innovation center for the development of fashion technology. D-house demonstrates the versatility of 3D printing applications from conceptual design to production using Stratasys 3DFashion technology. Elements made in this technology will be presented at D-house during the Design Week on June 6-12, 2022.

Lidewij Edelkoort – the world-renowned fashion specialist and trend forecaster, said there has been a long-standing interest in a 3D printer for textiles and apparel, with countless potential creative applications for fashion designers. As a result, it expects an enthusiastic response from the industry.

The TechStyle J850 3D printer enables fashion designers to 3D print directly onto textiles and clothing using an unlimited number of colors, translucent effects and flexible materials. Based on the unique 3DFashion technology, which allows the polymer to be glued on various types of textiles, the device is the leader of Stratasys business expansion in the field of haute-couture, luxury fashion and accessories.

Seven design groups that make up the presented collection SSYS 2Y22

Karim Rashid is one of the most industrious designers of his generation. Over 4,000 projects in production, 400 awards and activities in over 35 countries confirm Karim’s high position in the design industry. Each work in his repertoire reflects a distinctive style of artistic graphics and geometry. His interdisciplinary designs digitally transformed from 2D to 3D create a range of luxurious handbags and dresses that are fashionable for both everyday and more elegant occasions.

Jasna Rok Lab is an award-winning studio combining innovative fashion and the latest technology, whose work focuses on the physiology of feelings. Jasna Rokegem worked in collaboration with designer Travis Fitch, using Rhino and CLO3D software to translate EQ into 3D algorithmic structures. The Trypophilia collection visualizes the meridians that pass through our bodies, reflecting the physical location and language of each emotion – sadness, happiness, anger and fear.

Ganit Goldstein is a fashion designer and intelligent textile researcher specializing in the development of 3D printed fashion. The Ganit design was inspired by the textures found in nature throughout the four seasons – from crisp autumn leaves to soft spring flowers. It successfully simulates the way natural light plays with these elements, providing additional layers of depth in jacket designs. The “GnoMon” collection represents an innovative approach to personalizing textiles and rethinking what is trend and what can be considered timeless in fashion seasons.

FORÆVA is a multidisciplinary design laboratory co-founded by fashion designer Lana Dumitru and architect Vlad Tenu. FORÆVA’s intercultural digital embroidery gives a fascinating insight into how social contacts can be made through storytelling. The collection features classic ethnic Romanian designs for modern life, with 3D printed elements bringing us closer to these cultures as well as revealing hidden meanings when viewed up close.

Assa Studio has been at the forefront of discovering the creative potential of additive manufacturing for over a decade. Assa Ashuach has created several designs for the collection, including a unique lighting fixture design and an Origami-inspired customizable clutch bag, printed on Dinamicamiko vegetable leather. Its innovative 3D printed Evolve shoe features a personalized ‘Evolve Sensor’ midsole that examines the wearer while recording their movement data and is now on display at the Future Museum in Dubai.

Illusory Material is a San Francisco-based design studio co-founded by Jiani Zeng and Honghao Deng that specializes in optics and software research. As renowned designers and researchers, they are known for working on the lens effect they bring to life with this new refillable bottle design.

KAIMIN is active in the LGBTQIA + community and has collaborated with the likes of Bjork, Lady Gaga and Beyonce. Based in New York, this fluid-gender fashion brand has collaborated with Travis Fitch to design three new garments that reflect inclusiveness. The bodysuit, dress and jacket take their inspiration from New York’s parametric urban architecture.

The collection can be viewed during the Milan Design Week from June 6-12 at stand 7 in SuperStudio Piu.
