Floral shapes of black FLEXY plastic webbed over nude tulle mimic the hand-embroidery you could easily find at any Paris Fashion Week haute couture show. But these creations are actually a product of tech and fashion. Israeli textile designer Eden Saadon used 3D printer pen 3Doodler to create a form of “fashion art” that wowed the “Internet of Fashion” MeetUp group who met at the 5th Ave Microsoft store.
Eden Saaadon uses Swarovski Crystals as her embellishments.In true disruptor fashion, Eden was inspired by a YouTube video in which a strangely articulate adolescent used the 3D modeling pen to create an Eiffel Tower. Eden Saadon uses the 3Doodler CREATE which retails for $80 on Amazon to create what you see here.
Maxwell Bogue, one of the developers of the product [WobbleWorks, Inc. (formerly WobbleWorks LLC).], and his wife were there to pitch 3Doodler to the fashionphiles, but judging by the group’s fervor, it pretty much sold itself.
The Beauty: As far as Eden Saadon’s work, what else would you expect from a designer whose name equates to the unparalleled beauty of the “Garden of G-d”? Her work opens the door for designers, or consumers, to create custom products.
The Bitch: The clothes are made of plastic which raises some concern – how do you wash them? Won’t they break easily? I’ve come up with some solutions: Febreze, and more doodler ink! Although the 3Doodler ink comes in 85 colors, I feel that fashion/clothing designers would prefer a greater scope as much of their collections are based on new colors and combinations.
