Kasia Wisniewski – “I’m inspired by the fusion of handcraft and machine”

Kasia Wisniewski

Kasia Wisniewski is a fashion and accessories designer. 

Before entering the 3D Printing world, she used to work in fashion for several years. A couple of years ago, she created her own brand, Collected Edition. Beside being gorgeous pieces of jewelry and accessories, her creations are brought to live thanks to a mix of traditional handcraft and 3D printing technologies. No need to say that we love her work!

Nora Toure: Kasia, could you let us know about your background and what brought you into 3D printing?

Kasia Wisniewski: I studied fashion design and art history at Pratt Institute before working in luxury women’s wear for designers like Vera Wang and J. Mendel. I always loved the craft of high-end fashion, but I loved less the inaccessibility of that market.

3D printing is much more egalitarian- if you have a strong design direction and are willing to put the time and energy into learning how to design in 3D, the world is your oyster. I’ll admit, I had a few false starts- some ugly vases, some disastrous early attempts at making ferns- but once I hit a groove, I was so completely enamored of the possibilities 3D printing held.

I now design and sell my work on Etsy, Shapeways, and my own website. I focus primarily on jewelry and headpieces, but make a few men’s accessories and tabletop pieces, as well.
