The Kimberly Ovitzwith Shapeways collection is now online! Kimberly Ovitz has brought her first jewelry line to life using 3D printing. Inspired by the idea of natural defense, the collection includes five unique pieces that fit the body like armor.
This collaboration showcases the ways in which a designer's personal aesthetic can be achieved with 3D Printing technology. Even more exciting is that the entire collection is available for purchase straight from the runway!
Each of the six pieces debuted on the runaway today and looked stunning, check it out! We think that even Anna Wintour is a fan.
Jrey's wife is from the Bahamas so he designed a sea shell ring and set of earrings to remind her of home and had them 3D printed in Sterling Silver by Shapeways. The jewelry looks beautiful and she absolutely loved them. Now this is the only jewelry of it's kind in the entire world, made especially for one woman designed for her alone by her husband. This is the kind of gift that will be passed on for generations, with the grandmother telling the granddaughter the story of it's creation, and the depth of meaning that far exceeds any item bought off of the shelf.
VertigoPolka has designed a giant 7 foot long 3D printed necklace of 185 interconnected Octahedrons. The super cool image may catch your eye but the price will blow your mind. But if 7 feet of 3D printed awesomeness is too much for you there is also the original 36 Inch Octahedralink Necklace and the mid length 55 Inch version. Or get all three and strut your stuff with 175 inches (4.45 metres) of 3D printed jewelry around your neck.
Decoded Fashion hosted an event focussing on 3D Printing fashion. From fashion-forward dresses and shoes to masculine jewelry, they got together to discuss the latest innovation in 3D printing. At Space 530, the heart of NYC's fashion district, 5 presenters spoke to an intimate audience about this prime example of the FashionTech intersection.
Shapeways: Carine talks how our community of members (you) "make stuff" from jewelry to glasses to handbags.
GothamSmith: These four New Yorkers use "robots" (Shapeways) to 3-D print menswear accessories such as cufflinks.
Continuum Fashion: Part fashion label, part design label (200%awesome), Continuum Fashion uses digital technologies to create user-generated fashion collections.
Shulogique: Imagine a high-end stiletto specially created to fit the biomechanics of your foot.
strvct refers to structure. With 3D
printed nylon, delicate looking forms are actually incredibly strong
while also being impossibly lightweight. We present a triangulated spin
on the classic wedge pump, which brings to mind Cinderella's glass
slipper in its transparency. Expanding on this idea, we created a sandal
with a 3D printed base and origami tyvek butterflies.
