This Student-Created Design Updates a 19th Century Lace Bodice

This 3D-printed bodice created by Israeli student designer Ganit Goldstein from the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem puts a contemporary twist on an old lace bodice from a nineteenth century costume.

For a school project in her second year at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Goldstein was tasked with taking inspiration from a historical outfit and presenting it in a modern way. As lace has always been seen as a revolutionary fabric, this served as the starting point for her design process.

Goldstein generated her own special algorithm to create the 3D lacework designs and entirely digital approach that means no hands were used directly to create the garment itself. This speaks to the potential that additive manufacturing in fashion specifically has the potential to radically change ethical clothing production.
