3D-printed clothing gives designers the freedom to tailor the details of every garment to the wearer—however, these garments often sit on the body in a way that's sculpturally beautiful, albeit stiff and unlike most soft fabrics. 'Modeclix' is a project that introduces a new line of dresses that are not only customizable, but highly comfortable and truly wearable.

Prototypes for the 3D-printed dresses reinterpret weaving, knitting and other intricate stitches in order to create a fabric that's flexible, movable and mimics traditional cloth garments.

In total, there are eight dresses in the collection that are designed to be figure-flattering for women of all shapes and sizes. The Modeclix dresses will make their debut in April at this year's Mercedes-Benz Bokeh South Africa International Fashion Film Festival.
