Japanese Fashion Designer Literally Flexes Muscles with 3D Printing

The “Yuima Nakazato 2014 Collection,” which premiered on July 25 in Minami-Aoyama Tokyo, Japan, features unique neo-futuristic bibs that were 3D printed with the Stratasys Objet500 Connex multi-material 3D Printer.Yuima Nakazato is a 28 year old Japanese fashion designer who graduated from the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts with an MA in fashion design and had his first collection in Paris in 2009. Since then, his name has been decorated with many awards. His professional fame was firmly established when he created stage costumes for Lady Gaga and world tour costumes for Fergie.The concept of this year’s collection is based on Nakazato’s vision of a neo-futuristic sport: “young street punks, riding on motorcycles, playing a basketball-like sports game in an underground dune stadium.” For this imaginary game, Nakazato designed an original uniform and used the Stratasys multi-material 3D Printer to design bibs that combine numbers and images of human muscles, reflecting his artistic obsession with the idea of “clothing as extension of the body.”Starting with the modeling of a muscle fiber for the bibs, he used rubber-like and transparent materials that were simultaneously 3D printed with the Objet500 Connex multi-material 3D Printer to produce the clear, soft and flexible parts. These parts were then colored to achieve the desired look and feel.
