Not a fan of that garment, but the process is pretty awesome. Earlier this year Shapeways made a dress for Dita Von Teese that was pretty neat (http://www.shapeways.com/blog/archives/1952-revealing-dita-von-teese-in-a-fully-articulated-3d-printed-gown.html). I'd seen 3d printed heels before, and stuff like that too. The "computational design" concept I'd seen before, but they used it to calculate the polygons they would need to cut, but it produced a unique dress every time (http://www.continuumfashion.com/D.php).


Thanks for posting, neat stuff. :)

I wonder how comfortable that is to wear. And I wonder at the structural integrity of 3D-printed heels... I think I'd pass on those.

I think the key is that it is a major fashion design group moving in that direction. Materials research follows interest and even if it needed, for instance, to be padded with other fabrics for comfort, how long before undergarments are being printed? How long before a chemist develops a filament that is soft but retains shape, strong, but flexible? Match it with an affordable body measurement laser booth and custom garments and you have a new franchise opportunity.

See also the "Open Fit" project by artists Kyle McDonald and Lisa Kori Chung, described well in this article on The Creators Project: http://thecreatorsproject.vice.com/blog/open-sourcing-a-custom-pair-of-jeans-with-openfit-lab-from-kyle-mcdonald-and-lisa-kori


TL;DR: use a Kinect to scan your body shape and create a customized pattern for the best fitting pair of jeans you've ever worn :)
