3-D Garment

With the rising trend of 3-D in almost every aspect of life, 3-D has finally arrived in the clothing industry as well. The newly designed 3-D garment is inspired from the reaction to threat. The threat response is designed similar to the threat response given by the porcupine. All the living beings show involuntary response when they are confronted with external stimuli, such as, threat. However, porcupine’s reaction is more dramatic in comparison to human beings because their prominent spine undulating as the skin to which the rigid quills attaches moves, pliably, atop muscle and bone.

Looking at this effect of gaze, architect and designer Behnaz Farahi created a 3-D printed garment. She was readily inspired by the involuntary action of animal skin and the most thrilling part for her was its complex architecture. According to Farahi, skin is not a homogenous surface. Animals may have some hard thing on the upper side of their skin, for example, fishes have scales but underneath their scales, there is a soft structure, a flexible mesh of sorts that allows the scales to bend and flex.

Being a renowned architect and garment designer, this project inspired Farahi through her fascination for technologies and materials that can expand the functionality of our bodies. She believes that fashion designers can use advances to interact with the environment creatively for their vocational projects. For her, garments seem to be perfectly logical places to implement technology and it does creative wonders once you elevate the idea.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
