Paolo Testa worked with Noa Raviv on the promotional photo shoot of a collection of scarves that will appear for sale in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York alongside with the selected pieces of her 3-D printed dresses as a part of exhibition ManusXMachina.
In celebration of The Costume Institute exhibition Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, designer Noa Raviv (Israeli, born 1987) has expressly created this eye- catching scarf. Fascinated by the tension between tradition and innovation, the designer seeks the perfect balance in her work, combining meticulous handwork and cutting-edge technology.
Launching exclusively at The Met Store, the scarf recalls Raviv's extraordinary ensemble from her 2014 Hard Copy collection on view in the exhibition, which is made from hand-sewn, 3D-printed polymer synthetic tulle with laser-cut applique. Custom-printed on luxurious silk in Como, Italy, this futuristic scarf design adds an on-trend accent.
