3D Printed Exobiology Shoe Collection is Inspired by Nature and Custom Made

3D Printed Exobiology Shoe Collection is Inspired by Nature and Custom Made

Ica and Kostika’s new 3D printed shoe collection doesn’t exactly look comfortable. Gorgeous, yes, and unique, but the word wearable doesn’t exactly spring to mind.

The design […]

What are the Best Fabrics for 3D Printing?

3D printed fashion is becoming more prevalent in the design world, but there are plenty of challenges surrounding it. Taking a technology that is largely used to create solid plastic items and creating something flexible and wearable isn’t easy, and a lot of 3D printed fashion still isn’t exactly what you would call wearable, except […]

Fashion Designer Creates Both Attractive and Wearable 3D Printed Clothing

Often fashion on the runways looks good but is unwearable in a real-life setting, and that goes double for 3D printed fashion. Much of it is stiff and uncomfortable-looking, but some designers are incorporating the technology in a way that is both attractive and wearable. Lingxiao Luo of the Royal College of Art is one of […]

3D Printed Dress from Iris van Herpen Pushes Boundaries of Fashion

Too many people believe that art and science exist as polar opposites and have delineated the disciplines as existing in an irreconcilable dichotomy that acts to drive the two types of knowledge apart.
