3d printing is in fashion, in more ways than one

And by that, obviously, I mean that it is starting to play a role in fashion design. This is not new, 3d-printed dresses have been around for, ooo, months now (the concept is that old, yes). But I haven’t seen examples like this before:

These are from Israeli designer Noa Raviv, who created these amazing shapes out of ribbed polymers, using a Stratasys 3d printer. This is not a fashion blog, nor will it ever even come close (so not my thing), but I thought that these designs were amazing. They’re not terribly practical, perhaps (you’d need a LOT of cupboard space), but surprising, and beautiful (I love the forms), and an example of how “new” technologies are unleashing a new form of creativity in the fashion world. It should be interesting…
