Kate Moss stars in the first fashion 3D movie

I don’t know how I let this one slip by, but here is the news for those of you who missed it too. Kate Moss recently starred in the world’s first fashion 3D movie, KM3D-1 in collaboration with AnOther magazine.

KM3D-1

Artist and filmmaker Baillie Walsh created the short 3D film who previously worked with Moss on a hologram for Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2006 show.

In the film, Moss is depicted in an almost goddess-like manner, thanks to the stylings of Jerry Stafford. Using state-of-the-art Phantom cameras, Moss was captured at 1,000 shots per second, which allowed the film to be slowed down to a speed at which a slow movement is almost undetectable.

Kate appears frozen in time, before she launches a handful of shattering diamonds at the camera. This film is truly beautiful and the 3D technology makes for a more mystical viewing – you can view it here.

3D glasses are no longer embarrassing thanks to Gucci

It was only a matter of time before fashion designers started to ride the 3D wave! Oakley recently released some “optically correct” Real D glasses, but they weren’t exactly everyone’s cup of tea.

However, Gucci has latched on to the fact that most 3D glasses are darn ugly, and has done something about it! These Gucci “optically correct” Real D frames, are styled with the same 80’s look as the rest of Gucci’s eyewear in its recent summer collection.

They have a high-tech multi-layer mirrored coating too, which prevents distortion when you check out your new look in the mirror.

They are available only from US stores in December – though looking cool in 3D will set you back a pretty penny…$225 to be exact.

Elizabeth Hurley turns on the 3D show for Breast Cancer Awareness at Harrods

On Tuesday last week, British beauty  Elizabeth Hurley paid a visit to Harrods in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness month, and it was quite a show!

This was an event in honour of both for the Breast Cancer Awareness charity and for Estée Lauder, to raise awareness and contributions for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Hurley, who is the brand ambassador for Estée Lauder and ambassador for Breast Cancer Awareness, pushed the button which turned the famous Harrods facade pink in a spectacular 3D Global Illumination ceremony.

All viewers were given pink 3D glasses and saw the skies turn pink and strewn with the dazzling Breast Cancer Awareness emblem, the pink ribbon.

Hurley wore a gorgeous one-shoulder dress – in pink  of course – and met customers and signed purchases from the exclusive Estée Lauder Pink Ribbon Collection 2010.

If you want to help with the cause, buying one of the Estée Lauder Pink Ribbon Collection 2010 products is a great way to start, as £7.50 of every purchase is donated to the The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

They may not be the most beautiful creations, but they are a start!

My last blog post talked about 3D printing and this is going to big, you heard it here first! Students at two of Stockholm’s  most prestigious design schools have collaborated to produce the first, fully-wearable 3D printed shoes.

Naim Josefi of Beckmans and Souzan Youssouf of Konstfack, both designed and modelled the prototypes for Naim’s “Melonia” collection, shown during Stockholm Fashion Show earlier this year.

The concept is brilliant – creating artful shoes using Selective Laser Sintering.

Amsterdam Fashion Week: Iris van Herpen 3D couture

It is that time of year again – my favourite time, bar Christmas – when designers around the world begin to show their Spring/Summer collections for the year to come.

This month was Amsterdam International Fashion Week 2010, where much to my excitement, Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen unveiled a Fashionology inspired couture collection.

This mesmerising collection preview, named “Crystallisation”, is inspired by this very process; the transformation of water into crystal.

In order to create her stunning 3D pieces, Iris van Herpen collaborated with 3D product design company .MGX by Materialise,  along with architect Daniel Wright.

Models came down the catwalk in Ecco leather latticed dresses, cocooned in rippled-leather shoulder pads.

Some of the most beautiful pieces featured almost wing-like creations made to look like splashes of water, solidified into crystal.
