Imagine seeing a hot new dress or stylish shirt worn by your favorite celebrity on the red carpet. But instead of rushing out to the mall or ordering it online, you simply click "print" and watch the clothing instantly show up in your home office. It's a real possibility with 3-D printing moving in on the fashion world. As Laurie Segall reports, everything from shoes to underwear could be coming to a 3-D printer near you. This might look like your typical fashion show but here's the catch. We're not here to see designers like Oscar de la Renta, or Versace. The designers we're seeing here today have names like Makerbot and Adobe. And the items you see on this runway? They were 3-D printed. It could actually be a revolutionary turning point for a lof of the way that clothes are not only envisioned but also worn and made. The garments and accessories you're looking at weren't sewn, they were printed. "I think the cross ober between materials and technology is happening right now," says Faith Robinson of 3-D Printshow. 3-D printing is a technology that lets you digitally scan a design and then print a physical object, layer by layer. The items are generally made of plastic. "They can be so much more intricate and have the potential to be so much more intricate material-wise and shape-wise when you're able to design digitally," says Julian Hakes, a shoe designer. This season, designers sent their models strutting down the runway in 3-D printed gowns, equipped with 3-D printed undergarments. "I have a corset, a train and skirt all together," said one model. No outfit is complete without shoes. "I think the really exciting thing about this is kind of like, it's a little but like ITunes for your feet," says Hannah Soukup, a designer. "But maybe five years before it's there so at some point yes, you'll just be able to put your foot size in and choose a pair of shoes or a garment or a hat. They'll be exactly the right size just for you." The clothing came from computers, even some of the people lining the runway were wearing them. It's a growing trend, recently a Victoria's secret model got 3-D printed angel wings for the company's annual fashion show. The technology allows designers to try new ideas on their computer before printing the actual physical clothing. "At the moment a haute couture outfit is very exclusive, but what if, with a body scan, you could have your own individually custom made item of clothing, created in front of your eyes? asked Robinson. It's part of a trend designers call "comptetational fashion." "Computational fashion is already quite a developed field of practice," says Robinson. "But we want to show that this is more than art, more than just a design." For those designers experimenting with 3-D printing, the technology is a canvas for creativity. "It allows you to do things that you couldn't do through standard processes," says Hakes. "So things that are too intricate for the hand, down to tenths of a millimeter in size."
