Sculptural 3D Printed Glasses Produced by Safilo, Materialise and Francis Bitonti

Many people have to get glasses at an early age, even in young childhood. For a child, having to get glasses can be traumatic – the fear of being labeled a nerd or four-eyes is a big one. What can help, though, is having cool frames. That doesn’t go away with childhood, either; many adults […]

2017 Vancouver Fashion Week: Australian Designer to Debut Dress with 150 3D Printed Butterflies

Artists, and most certainly fashion designers, are known for their willingness to take risks.
