All the 3D Printed Dresses + Two
Since the first 3D printed dress was created by Freedom of Creation in 2000, up to date there has been a total of thirteen 3D printed outfits. In order of creation, here are the pieces:
4. “Escapism” Dress 1. By Iris van Herpen in collaboration with Daniel Widrig, as well as .MGX by Materialise. 3D printed in 2011, using the SLS process in polyamide. Black finish added post-printing.
7. “Escapism” Dress 4. By Iris van Herpen in collaboration with Daniel Widrig, as well as .MGX by Materialise. 3D printed in 2011, using the SLS process in polyamide. Named by Times Magazine as “One of the 50 best inventions of 2011.”
9. “Cathedral Dress“. By Iris van Herpen in collaboration with Isaie Bloch, as well as .MGX by Materialise. 3D printed in 2012 using the SLS process in polyamide, in combination with a ‘copper electroplating bath’.
11. “Voltage: Black Dress“. Iris van Herpen in collaboration with Julia Koerner, as well as Materialise. 3D printed in 2013 using the SLS process in TPU, a flexible material, Black finished added post-printing.
12. “Voltage: Cape and Skirt“. Iris van Herpen and Neri Oxman. This was the first piece ever created using a FDM multimaterial 3D printer, it was 3D printed in 2013 by Stratasys.

The technology has been quickly evolving over the past 3 years. With a number of fashion show already scheduled for the summer of ’13 as well as the fall (including the July Haute Couture show by Iris van Herpen, fashion shows poposed by i.Materialise in asia, as well as piece currently in development by Joshua Harker to be unveiled in November), we have a lot to look forward to in the world of Additive Fashion.
*Update: For the sake of completeness, I’d like to add two more items. One is a category defying beautiful and immaginative work of Three Form Fashion, which in all rightness deserves a post of its own in the very near future.
Another addition is the one I’ve written about before, the 3D printed bikini by Continuum fashion:
