Yuima Nakazato demonstrated that the creation of clothing thanks to 3D technology is on the rise. He had already made a name for himself in Japanese fashion, and at the world level by creating the stage costumes of the Black Eyed Peas and by launching a men’s line. That being the case, the japanese stylist is recognized for his daring!
As high-tech as the Japanese fashion, the young designer regularly uses a 3D printer to combine figures and images of human muscles. We flirt here with science fiction. Finished scissors and fabric, Yuima Nakazato puts forward her perception of clothing as a “body extension”. Frequently traveling to Paris, having left his mark at the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Belgian and French should ask him where was born this singular creativity.
The artist blossoms by choosing transparent materials similar to rubber that must be printed in 3D to allow the clear parts to remain flexible and malleable. A necessary resemblance that drives his quest to artificially approach the appearance of the muscle as closely as possible. It remains to color these parts to get the desired appearance. “We could even order a dress from a designer on the other side of the world and print it locally once the plans are sent,” said Yuima Nakazato. As crazy as it may seem, a dress can emerge in less than 24 hours! There is no doubt that with the technological improvement, what is now a futuristic fashion will prevail more quickly than expected.
