The research of Troy Nachtigall involves the ideas of how clothing and accessories fit not only on the physical level of the body, but also in movement and in society. In September Troy along with Pauline van Dongen and Leonie Tenthof van Noorden created a dynamic look for the Dutch Minister of Education. Troy concentrated on the 3D printing and scanning to create dynamic shoes that are 100% 3D printed.
This was the first time that Troy printed High Heels as they are technically challenging. Special attention had to be given to support, overheating and structural integrity. Made in only two months, Troy worked night and day to make a pair of comfortable and supportive shoes. Special thanks to SLEM for the use of their 3D shoe printing laboratory where each shoe took more than 100 hours to produce.
For the occasion of Prinsjesdag 2015 a team of researchers and designers of the University of Technology in Eindhoven developed an exclusive outfit for Minister Jet Bussemaker (Dutch Minister of Culture, Education and Science)
The team developed a dress, hat, bag and pair of shoes within two months, using digital technologies like 3D scanning and 3D printing to create a personalized and tailor made look. The project exemplifies how new, digital technologies combined with traditional crafts provide new value creation for the fashion industry. It is based on the belief that the future of fashion is dynamic and adaptive; both in the way it is made, as well as in the way clothing acts on the human body.
