As part of her graduate collection for her Fashion Design degree at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Danit Peleg created the first 3D-printed fashion collection printed entirely using home printers. Though not knowing what kind of results to expect from her project, the young designer embarked on a journey that would enable her to create an entire garment using technology that was accessible to anyone. Inspired by the many triangles present in the painting „Liberty Leading the People“ by Eugène Delacroix’s, the first piece designed was the “LIBERTE” jacket, printed with a Witbox home printer and FilaFlex filament material. It took 9 month of research and development and more than 2000 hours to print, which equivals to 400 hours per outfit.
This breakthrough collection will not only help democraticize fashion, giving designers more independence in the creation process, but brings us even closer to the day we will all be printing our own clothes from home, the designer explains. For more visit her website www.danitpeleg.com.
