Tel Aviv fashion artist Danit Peleg strives to bring tech into her fashion design with her new wave of 3D-printed fabric! The clothes, which are made from a durable, rubber-like material, started as a prospective idea in 2015, and have since took the form of clothing in a variety of colors and designs. The dresses take advantage of FilaFlex, which is a 3D printed material that stretches and feels comfortable against skin, as opposed to standard 3D-printed filament that is brittle and rough, making it unsuitable for use as clothing. The designs, due to their printed nature, are easily sharable, and can be printed in under 100 hours using modern printers. A trend that has been picking up speed recently, 3D-printed fashion and clothing is quickly becoming the talk of the town, and Peleg’s design are sure to turn heads!

After years of planning and preparation, artist couple Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s floating bridge art piece has finally been completed and opened to the general public in Italy! The piece, which was one of the couple’s last planned art pieces before Jeanne-Claude’s death in 2009, is titled “Floating Piers”, and contains over 200,000 floating fabric bricks that come together to create a bridge, linking Monte Isola and Sulzano with the island of San Paol on Lake Iseo. The project has been in planning since the 1970s, making this art piece an accomplishment for Christo in memory of his late wife. The exhibit is open and free for all visitors 24/7, barring weather and other restrictions, making this a prime spot for locals and tourists alike to check out this feat in design and art!
