Noa Raviv was still a student at Shenkar College Of Engineering And Design in Israel when she became interested in the strange way computers behave when they can’t cope with an instruction. If you tell a computer to design something that doesn’t make sense, it can spit out a broken pattern.

The tension between chaos and organization now inhabits her work, which makes use of 3D printing and has been on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, among other places. Her dresses, which are sold at Los Angeles boutique H. Lorenzo, are priced between $2,000 and $3,000.
