From Cellular 3D-Printed Jewelry to Pollution-Absorbing Bikinis

 - Dec 2, 2015
As tech continues to appear in the fashion industry, 3D-printed fashion creations are steps away from becoming as normal as pret-a-porter collections. Whether the piece is a glamorous gown or a pair of sneakers, 3D printing is making waves in the industry.

Jewelry was one of the first 3D-printed fashion creations to grace the forefront of fashion. Lionel T. Dean's 18 Carat Gold collection and Monocircus's spinning earrings brought change to the jewelry industry and really kicked off a wide range of 3D-printed styles. Footwear has also proven it can be easily 3D-printed. While Highrise Shoes are designed for avant-garde fashion fans, the Behrad Ghodsi wedges are organic high heels that can be recycled after wear.

These 3D-printed fashion creations also include high-fashion pieces like Iris van Herpen's Spring/Summer '15 collection and Intel Curie's Spring/Summer '16 lineup.
