Seeing the potential for creating the future of fashion with additive manufacturing, Mora-Sanchez worked with Cosine Additive on the creation of a dynamic 3D-printed textiles product.
The WAYUU Spring 2019 collection is an exploration of 3D-printed fabrics inspired by traditional Wayuu tribe of the Guajira Peninsula. The textiles boast "auxetic patterns which expand under longitudinal strain and contract when compressed," which gives the ready-to-wear garments an ever-changing quality that moves in response to the body, as most fabrics do. A standout from the collection is the flexible, award-winning Loom dress.
This innovative 3D-printed textiles project has been named a 2017 Red Dot Award winner and speaks to the important role 3D printing will have on the creation of textiles in the future.
