This year’s Met Gala theme, Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology, captured the excitement over the future of hi-tech fashion. With new designs emerging regularly (from crystal dresses that can be controlled by remote controls or dresses that change clothes), people have begun to dream of a hi-tech fashion future. One where we might be able to print our clothes at home just before we go out or wear garments that could reflect our mood, even.
But that future is far off, according to Bradley Rothenberg, co-founder and CEO of nTopology. Rothenberg is an engineer developing software to help others build better 3-D printed parts. He’s worked with fashion designers in the past, providing the geometric shapes that fashion designers used to print their creations.
3-D printing could be revolutionary, said Eric Wilson, fashion news director at InStyle magazine, just not in the way we’d expect it to be.
