The Lemonbow Downloadable Swimwear line fuses fashion and tech in the most intriguing way.

Fashion brands are no stranger to technology, having developed official websites and interactive programs that appeal to their fanbase. However, what about the actual production and fitting side of the spectrum? The Lemonbow Downloadable Swimwear line is substituting threads and needles with 3D printing and laser-cutting to attain the perfect fit for consumers. The digital technique will allow designers to alter to perfection once measurements of body points are entered into the system. The design will eventually be sent to the laser-cutter to begin official production.

This is definitely an interesting concept considering how many designers often create with their own hands. Look for this to launch very soon.
