Geometry, architecture and 3-D printing in fashion design

Last year it was Poincare Conjecture that inspired Dai Fujiwara to present geometry in his collection in Paris fashion week. This year I am in awe about 3-D printing used in fashion - computers, geometry, architecture - all combined together and applied to create wearable sculptures - not for everyday use of course. Let me just post pictures I collected from the internet of amazing creations by Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen (born 1984). From her webpage:
 The essence of van Herpen is expressing the character and emotions of an unique 
woman and to extend the shape of the feminine body in detail. She mixes craftsmanship- using old and forgotten techniques- with 
innovation and materials inspired on the world to come.

Here is a video:
