The technology has been quickly evolving over the past 3 years.  With a number of fashion show already scheduled for the summer of ’13 as well as the fall (including the July Haute Couture show by Iris van Herpen, fashion shows poposed by i.Materialise in asia, as well as piece currently in development by Joshua Harker to be unveiled in November), we have a lot to look forward to in the world of Additive Fashion.

*Update: For the sake of completeness, I’d like to add two more items.  One is a category defying beautiful and immaginative work of Three Form Fashion, which in all rightness deserves a post of its own in the very near future.
