Sylvia Heisel and her husband Scott Taylor created HEISEL, and they have been working together for about six years. HEISEL is an established fashion brand who started in traditional women’s evening wear, and then became obsessed with new technologies. When Sylvia and Taylor started out they were using only a standard, FDM desktop machines and commercially available yet specialized 3D printing materials. Since then she has created several 3D pieces including a carbon fiber dress and a coat made from Ninjaflex flexible filament. In the future they hope to promote 3D printing and wearable technology to the next generation of fashion designers.
