Designer Kasuni Rathnasuriya believes in preserving traditional art forms, which is why she incorporated the dying art of handmade Dutch lace into her concept designs for the inaugural launch of KÛR, the clothing line she started in Sri Lanka in 2009. Now based in New York City, KÛR specializes in hand-crafted, contemporary women’s fashion. Recently, Rathnasuriya decided to complement her lacework by adding some modern elements into her upcoming SS16 collection, which was showcased in October at the Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival in Queensland, Australia.
“I initially wanted to create a ‘Phenomenal look’ for SS16,” Rathnasuriya told 3DPrint.com. “Thus I was thinking of bringing non- conventional and conventional elements together. As an emerging brand we are very much open to technology. I always wanted to incorporate 3D printing to my designs after I saw some work in PV at Paris.”
“As a brand we believe there will be a time we all have a 3D printing facility at home and printing our own pieces,” she told us.
