Granted, these shoes are pretty hideous. But like any new technology, it won’t be long before we’re all wearing 3D-printed accessories. That’s the thinking behind of Layer by Layer, an exhibition at the London College of Fashion that examines the digital print phenomenon in fashion — okay, not yet a phenomenon, but soon. On hand will be works by Naim Josef and Souzan Youssouf, Ron Arad, and Daniel Widrig, as well as a MakerBot Replicator 2 3D printer that will run throughout the exhibition, printing objects which will then be put on display.
Layer by Layer, April 10 – May 18, Fashion Space Gallery, London College of Fashion, 20 John Prince’s Street, London, W1G 0BJ
