The Inescapable Rise of 3D Printed Clothing
With the growing expansion of areas in which 3D printing can be used, it is no surprise that the apparel industry is also in the process of being conquered. While the concept of printing our own 3D printing clothes from the comfort of our homes may seem outlandish, ground-breaking technological advances in the fashion industry prove that it is more a matter of when than if. Well-esteemed fashion names, such as Zac Posen, have already made use of 3D printing to showcase intricate, often kaleidoscopic designs both on the runway and in exhibits like the Met Gala. But such cutting-edge innovation doesn’t run cheap, with million-dollar machines utilized throughout the lengthy processes, thus slowing its growth beyond high-end fashion and into the mainstream 3D printed clothing industry.
