Italian Manufacturer Branches into 3D-Printed High Fashion
To celebrate its new “rapid prototyping” service, the Italian-based Gruppo Meccaniche Luciani (GML) — an established design company for footwear tools and molds — have come up with a wild collection of 3D-printed clothing. Rapid prototyping has become quite a buzz-worthy term in the 3D printing world; it allows designers to see their work realized quickly and afford-ably, so they can make last-minute tweaks before sending a large order to the factory.
GML’s industrial 3D printer has the versatility to make shoes, handbags, and other accessories in a number of hours, which is exactly what they did for their own fashion collection. Three pairs of high-heeled shoes, a jewel-like handbag, a bustier, and a bracelet were made with a 3D printer, showcasing the variety of colors and shapes that are possible with this new technology. Below, we’ve shared some of the production processes and stylish designs that are causing fashion designers to take 3D printing more seriously.
