Designer Camilo Alvarez unveiled "Botanicracia," his latest collection for men and women, at Colombiamoda 2013, bringing garments with 3D elements to Colombia's runways for the first time.

"We want to be the first to get into this technology, which has already been used a bit in France and the United States," the Colombian designer said.

Garments with 3D features are created by superimposing successive layers of a semi-elastic plastic material on each other, Alvarez said.

The designer created accessories, such as hats and bracelets, to go along with dresses, some of which combined a core plastic structure with knits that formed the remainder of the garment. EFE
