London avant-garde designer Gabriela Ligenza's latest Autumn/Winter 2014 hat collection breaks the conventional molds of the fashion industry with the use of a 3D printer in the designing process. Each of the hats featured in the stylishly hip collection was created entirely with the use of a 3D printer.
Ligenza's hats interestingly blend technology with the design world in a fun and experimental way. While consumers don't see the two worlds collide in the aesthetic of a collection, fashion and technology often go hand in hand in the development of a high-fashion brand. Ligenza brings technology to the forefront of his hat collection with the use of a 3D printer to bring his design visions to life. Many of the hats in the collection are made from a white, wire-like fabric molded into curved geometric shapes. The wire-like design allows the hat to cast beautiful shadows along the face.
