Fashion student Danit Peleg has printed five looks for a stunning collection from the comfort of her home. The result is beautifully intricate but surprisingly wearable and begs to question the future of clothing. The 27-year old fresh graduate from the Shenkar Colleges in Tel Aviv imagines asks in the accompanying video: “Will we be able to design, share and print our clothes in our own home?”

Peleg shares that the journey to creating the collection wasn’t as easy as downloading and printing files. Her year-long foray into printable clothing began with trying to figure out how to give plastic the flexibility of textiles.

Her first solution was using FilaFlex filaments, a novel type of polyurethane with a greater ability to flex.
