by • July 28, 2016 • No Comments


3D printing is the next industrial revolution, according to Pascal Morand.

“Make no mistake, 3D printing is nothing short of a new industrial revolution which in addition holds next for primary technology in terms of economic models, not very least via on-demand production,” said Pascal Morand, executive president of the governing body of French style: the Fédération Française de la Couture, du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode. He wrote a idea provoking piece on the next of 3D printed style, and what it means for turn it intoers and the industry on Business of Fashion.

In his opinion article, Morand talks of the next of 3D printing in the style industry, ideas on sustainability and what it means for consumers.

“3D printing undoubtedly puts additional power in the hands of consumers, who can play a bigger role in the turn it into and realisation of their products. But up to what point? To manufacture one’s own objects is rad and 3D printing is a highly worthwhile technology for the manufacturer movement. But in style and luxury, this has its limits. Fashion is Balzac’s “hieroglyphed man,” where the act of buying is linked to the meaning contained in a brand or turn it intoer’s point of view. Besides, while it is effortless to print a basic resin bracelet, it is much additional harsh to turn it into a sophisticated luxury product. But it’s not not easy to imagine brands offering their clients the version of manufacturing easy products inside sure parameters.

Indeed, maybe many of all, 3D printing can facilitate differentiation and customisation, enriching the dialogue between the consumer and the turn it intoer and giving rise to a wider range of goods than at any time before”..

Morand believes which while 3D printing is ideal for rigid items such as jewelry, purses and embellishments, the use is garment manufacturing is pushing ahead. Integration of thermoplastics in harsh soft materials, like embroidery and lace are not far off. He in addition thinks which it is conceivable to imagine 3D printing and weaving being combined together with machines.
