When a leader sets an example to society through her company and vision, it becomes so inspiring that it prompts many of us to follow her path to success. An example of such outstanding leadership is Julia Daviy, founder of Julia Daviy Inc, who is a designer and producer of wearable 3d printed clothes and inventor of a zero-waste method for 3d printed clothing production.
And what prompted this leader to start her company was her vivid vision: to provide zero-waste and cruelty-free clothing to the fashion industry. With the experience of launching organic active wear in 2015 and hands-on experience in working in clean technology innovations, she set out to achieve her vision. But soon, she came to realize that to achieve her vision of providing a zero-waste and cruelty-free clothing, she had to bring drastic changes to production methods as the production itself was labor-sensitive and environmentally irresponsible.
This led to the invention of Julia Daviy’s method of creating pieces clothing digitally as 3D-prinytable files and turning them into physical objects—ready patterns of garments on 3D printers. To achieve this goal, Julia Daviy and her team created their large-format 3D printer 3D factory able to work with extra flexible materials. Using this new printer, today she provides beautiful, flexible, and environmentally-savvy high-end clothing, the first clothing in the market that created entirely on large-format 3D printers. Recognized for its authenticity and uniqueness, she presented the first-ever collection of wearable clothing printed entirely on large-format 3D printers at the New York Fashion Week 2018. That was a huge breakthrough - for the last several years, some designers have been experimented a lot with 3D printing, but mostly what they did looked as hard-plastic clothes made on small desktop 3D printers, that actually did not solve any problems of clothing industry.
Reflecting on the successes and about her patented method of 3D printing of clothing, Julia Daviy says, “In Miami, together with my partner, I created a 3D-Printed Fashion Lab. Our studio and laboratory in Miami is the first 3 D printed clothing manufacturing model in the United States and probably in the world, where the pieces of clothes are being created on large-format industrial 3D printers,”.
Now she is also launching a test version of the software where customers are given the opportunity to customize their 3D-printed piece of garments according to their interests. For instance, “the customer will be able to regulate the style, pattern, colors, waist height, add pockets, to get your desired skirt or jacket created on 3D printers,” states Julia Daviy.
Through this practice, Julia Daviy is not only meeting her customers’ expectations but is also transforming them from customers to creators, enabling them to customize their unique piece of clothing in their own rights. Also, “we have ambitious goals to create and deliver the 3D-printed pieces of garment very fast—around ten working days,” adds Julia Daviy.
The Genesis of 3D Factory
Julia Daviy’s introduction of her own 3D printer was a transformational change for the fashion industry. The traditional clothing production has always been based on fabrics and included a cutting-process that wasted a huge amount of material, as patterns were laid out and waste material was discarded. “It’s simply an unavoidable part of making clothes from fabric,” tells Julia.
Julia Daviy’s 3D printers do not make fabric. By printing on her quintessential 3D printer, she eliminates most cutting and waste from clothes making process and also eliminates the dependence on fabric. This, in turn, helps Julia Daviy to print the individual or whole items of clothing directly. “We use fabrics for just lining,” adds Julia. In addition, these wearable pieces of clothing are first of its kind created on large-format 3D printers with almost zero waste in production.
Today, from 3 D designing to 3 Printing and Post Processing and Assembling, Julia Daviy offers an alternative yet an exceptional way of designing and printing clothes that are beautiful, flexible, and most importantly environmentally-savvy.
Going forward, Julia Daviy intends to produce smart intelligence clothes that have no parallel in the market. That would be absolutely a new page and the team at Julia Daviy calls it the 3rd era of fashion. “Today the clothing industry is still using old-fashioned methods and materials. Let’s say we consider the use of leather and other animal body parts a very barbaric old-style “material”. Actually, the skin should not be considered as the material for making clothing or accessories at all,” sums up Julia.
Steering the fashion industry toward a positive future, Julia Daviy has become a brand that the fashion industry resonates with eco-friendly, cruelty-free, sustainability-made clothing.
