Top 70 Customization Trends in October

From 3D-Printed Gold Pumps to Wooden Photo Garlands

— October 25, 2015 — Art & Design
As many of the top October 2015 customization ideas in October prove, consumers are looking for hyper-personalized products and experiences in all areas. From customized home decor to tailor-made accessories and coffee machines that print selfies, there is a high demand for technology to be put to use for the purposes of customization.

Now that the holiday season is fast approaching, several brands are appealing to consumers with the allure of handmade items, maker culture and DIY gifting. This is exemplified in 3D-printed headphones, bow ties and footwear.

Rather than just offering customization as an option to consumers, many brands are making personalization the foundation of products and services. For instance, Romy Paris aims to revolutionize the cosmetics industry by creating custom skincare routines supported by a tailored selection of products.
