After quickly learning how to program our 3D printers (not our first 3D printing engineer to work in heels) we got down to discussing some of our recent adventures in 3D printed fashion with the gown for Dita Von Teese, the collection with Kimberly Ovitz and thousands of designs from the Shapeways community inspiring designers around the world.

Coco is known for her business acumen, charitable work and tech savvy.  She has appeared on the cover of a kazillion magazines (check out her site for proof) a number of tv shows AND was mentioned by Kanye West…

We look forward to seeing how Coco takes 3D printing to the fashion world.

    3D printing is most certainly the next step in the world of Fashion. We just published an article about Shapeways, Iris van Herpen, and the concept of 3D printing. The possibilities are limitless!
