Julia Daviy 3D printed sustainable luxury collection of handbags is here. When you mention innovative fashion designers using 3D printing tech, Julia Daviy comes to mind straight away.
Over the last three years, Julia Daviy has produced the fashion industry’s most innovative sustainable creations.
With growing followers and brand popularity, Daviy’s 3D printed and digitally customisable skirts got featured in the ‘must-have’ list of Vogue UK Spring-Summer 2019 Issue and got presented at New York Fashion Weeks.
Who’s Julia Daviy?
But who’s Julia Daviy? Self-titled a pioneer of ‘Beneficial Fashion’ – fashion with a positive impact on the wearer and the environment – the Miami-based maverick continues to fuse nature, science, and fashion.
Julia is a true pathfinder in using innovative 3D and 4D printing technologies, as tools to create high-end sustainable fashion apparel and accessories.
Apart from her education and practical work in 3D and 4D printing digital manufacturing, inventorying and supply, Julia also has an extensive background in Environmental Science and Clean Technologies.
According to Julia, the use of 3D printing technology in fashion must support sustainability, rather than working against it.
“Technology is not deterministic; people are. As such, it is in our hands, designers of digital fashion and creators of innovative materials to make sustainable 3D printed fashion a reality, and finally put an end to all unsustainable processes killing this planet,” reflects Julia.
As a co-founder of the ‘New Age Lab,’ a place of continuous research in the field of using innovative technologies to better the fashion and design industries, Julia Daviy seeks to create a paradigm shift in fashion.

So far, things look promising.
Julia’s constant innovations and work in the field of 3D printing has taken the fashion industry from rigid and impossible to wear 3D printed pieces to fashion printed from organic materials with zero-impact on the environment.
Also created in the ‘New Age Lab’, Julia Daviy 2018 Collection was a breakthrough for fashion both, 3D printing and fashion industries.
Named the ‘Liberation Collection’ and presented during NYFW 2018, this unique 3D printed fashion line was the world’s first to feature 3D print leather alternatives and has achieved zero-waste during the manufacturing process.
Julia’s decade long work has helped reduce waste and environmental footprints across the fashion sector, thanks to the clean technology she’s using.
However, Julia Daviy 2019 Morphogenesis collection of 3D printed sustainable handbags, conceived digitally and turned into physical products with the help of 3D printing saw the designer taking luxury fashion to another level.

“I have been looking for some time to achieve zero waste, and even have a positive impact on the natural ecosystem, through the transformation of standard manufacturing processes”, states Julia.
What makes Julia Daviy 2019 Morphogenesis collection so unique are not just the near-zero-waste additive manufacturing processes and low-carbon-footprint emissions, but the novel designs.
Inspired by Alan Turing‘s groundbreaking work on morphogenesis – the means by which nature produces differentiation from groups of identical cells and develops shapes, the designs are out of this world.
In this collection, the designer has employed unusual geometric shapes as motifs and build them out into sumptuously elaborate patterns, much as nature builds complexity out of simplicity.
The Morphogenesis collection is Julia’s latest milestone in her efforts to create sustainable but elegant couture and accessories, conceived as functional art pieces whose striking yet elegantly nuanced design complements a wide range of ensembles.
The collection verges so much towards arts that the Boston Center for the Arts has invited Julia to showcase her work on 4D printed architectural soft clothes as part of the Feminist/Futurist exhibition, running February 8 through April 5 2020. (The event might have been cancelled amidst COVID-19, please check in advance).
Julia Daviy Morphogenesis sustainable luxury handbags collection is defined by simple lines as unifying motifs able to create variations and themes that range from voluptuously rich to subtly understated.
Moreover, there’s a subtle link between couture and theoretical biology thanks to designer’s combination of expertise in 3D printing and digital fabrication, fashion, clean-tech and renewable energy projects.

Each bag is highly customised, at material and design levels, which translate into perfectly unique products.
Daviy’s painstakingly calibration of her production aims to achieve the lowest degrees of wastefulness and carbon production.
For example, the carbon footprint of Morphogenesis collection of sustainable luxury handbags was reduced by more than 92 per cent.
I would love to share our case on sustainability as our bags carbon footprint at least 92% lower comparing to an average leather bag. #sustainablefashion #CrueltyFree #bags #artbags pic.twitter.com/cc69DYdE2u

Similarly, the designer has managed to radically decrease the use of water, waste and pollution, when compared with the traditional product manufacturing of leather bags.
Moreover, the entire process is traceable and fully transparent.

A decade of fashion; here’s to the next one.
The past decade has been turbulent – and defining – for fashion: child labour, climate crisis, gender inequality, animal cruelty, and reckless plastic pollution, just to name a few.
In these critical times, finding media that reports with rigour and integrity at heart is difficult.
Finding media that informs all, regardless of where they live or if they can afford to pay, is even harder.
Moreover, independent fashion media magazines are increasingly silenced by social media misinformation and commercial ownership.
