The First Fashion Application Of 3D Printing Is Here

The hardest part about being in the fashion world is creating something new, something that hasn’t been done before. Everyone wants to be “unique,” but that doesn’t even mean anything anymore. Thanks to a new fashion startup Bow & Drape, people can now make their style stand out, literally. With their launch of 3D printing technology, customers can personalize hardware for accessories on their website bowanddrape.com.

It’s pretty simple. You choose a base, like a buckle or a zipper, and then pick a material to build your design. The 3D options right now are belt buckles, straps for clutches, and zippers, but the owner, Aubrie Pagano, sees this technology growing fast. Pagano tells WWD that this idea will open new doors for customer interaction, and will eventually evolve into printing the designs in a person’s own home. Also part of the future? Licensing your own designs. It’s like you can be your own designer with just a couple clicks on the computer. So cool, right?

The whole process, from order to design to shipping, takes about 2 weeks and between $48 – $148. Pagano wants to offer different designs for different seasons, so hopefully there are some cool halloween patterns in the mix.

In other news, you can now shop online at TJ Maxx, Target’s giving people a $100 gift card, and Christian Lacroix shows off his collab with Petit Bateau
