NOA RAVİV COMBİNES GRİD PATTERNS AND 3D PRİNTİNG FOR FASHİON COLLECTİON Israeli fashion designer Noa Raviv has integrated 3D-printed elements into ruffled garments influenced by distorted digital drawings. Raviv used the shapes of broken Greek and Roman marble sculptures to inform the asymmetric silhouettes. "The silhouettes were influenced by classical sculptures, which were the point of departure for creating the collection," she said. Noa Raviv is a fourth year student at Shenkar College of Design in Ramat Gan, Israel. Raviv received the Fini Leitersdorf Excellence Award in recognition of the beauty, creativity, and skill demonstrated in her graduate collection. She is currently a finalist in the running for Fashion Designer of the Year through the 3D Printshow Global Awards
25 Creative Packaging Designs That Practically Sell Themselves We often consider the products we use and their packaging to be two separate things – the product is the thing we want, and its packaging is a piece of trash to be thrown away.

First, there’s revulsion: “the expected ‘Holy shit! These people look crazy,’ which definitely isn’t the point of the work,” the British photographer tells Slate. “And then there are hopefully some people who understand the point I’m making about the direction we’re headed.” It’s also easy to feel a bit of both. While body modification is an increasingly accepted mode of personal expression, it’s still a taboo and unnerving topic for many of us--even more so when seen in the razor sharp detail of Toledano’s lens.
SHOWcabinet: Prosthetics exhibition Fetishistic suits of armour, orthopaedic braces and wearable tusks all feature in an exhibition of prosthetics at the SHOWcabinet space in London (+ movie). Curated by Niamh White and Carrie Scott of fashion film website SHOWstudio, the exhibition opened on Thursday and contains pieces intended to enhance, protect or deform the body. The name of the showcase derives from the Ancient Greek word "prosthesis", which means "to add", but the collection also incorporates the modern understanding of prosthetics as replacement limbs. Above: Fragmented Figure by Úna Burke Croquis Pose Quick sketch method I came across a video on quickly hashing out a croquis pose from a photograph. I wanted to make sure to share it with you but have managed to lose the link. Ugh!
