3D printing in fashion: Nike and Ross Barber



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.

Library corner: Mr Freedom by Paul Gorman




Beyond ecstatic for the launch of Paul Gorman’s book on Mr Freedom. Mandi Lennard has written a great piece here that sums up Tommy Roberts and Mr Freedom but if you don’t know your 60s pop culture, suffice to say that without Tommy Roberts there would probably be no Fiorucci, Hysteric Glamour or Marc by Marc Jacobs. The book is avaiable from June and you can preorder here.
