3D printing in fashion: Nike and Ross Barber

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I’ve been researching 3D printing in fashion for a few weeks. Most commonly used for prototyping in industrial design, Nike has started using it for prototyping its fashion sportswear and LCF graduate Ross Barber used it to make hybrid leather-nylon shoes.
