3D Printing – What Effect Will It Have On Fashion?

It seems that the way in which we buy and receive our clothing online could change dramatically in the coming years. The age of 3D printing is set to rock the world in years to come and clothing is just one of the many items you can print third dimensionally. Home wares, accessories, food, jewellery, and even body parts will be obtainable by printing from a computer or similar device. Clothing and fashion are just a couple of the many industries that may change due to the invention of 3D printing in our homes.

At the moment three dimensional printing is only used in manufacturing and production as well as factories. These are usually large machines and produce many products at any one time. But soon a smaller version of the larger machines could be placed in every home in the country and achieve the same result. Just by heading to your favourite online store and clicking on exactly what you want to buy, the said product could be printed into your home and in your hands within a matter of minutes. The revolutionary idea is a fashion lover’s dream. Any last minute clothing disasters could be avoided just by printing off a new outfit online.

It could also revolutionise the way in which we choose our fashion and the labels we wear. For instance if a womens designer clothing brand wanted to reach out to more of its customers, it could do just that by making 3D printing accessible to its buyers. But another womens designer clothing brand that chooses not to go with the idea may lose customers to those who do use the printing technique.

With the ever growing pace of the fashion world continuing to speed up, the idea that you could have the latest looks and styles in your hands within minutes, could be the way forward for many designers, brands and clothing stores. It may also lead to a rise in online fashion stores as clothing companies who do not already have a shop available on the web will need one to be able to allow their customers to 3D print their stock.

Of course all of this is due in many years to come. Most of the equipment to be used in 3D printing is very expensive and not yet accessible enough to be placed in homes. But eventually we will be able to have a fresh look or a new outfit in just a matter of minutes without even having to leave the house.

Which Is the Next Brand to Make It Big in the Casual Fashion Market?

We live in an individualistic society. For this reason, we all want to stand out from the crowd, we all feel as if we are that ‘special little snowflake’ and we want to project this image of ourselves onto the outside world. Many of us do this by wearing edgy and funky clothing.

However, it is not always very easy to dress in a way that is unusual. This is because there are so many funky brands that become mainstream before we have even heard of them. By the time that we catch up with the trend it has already been and gone with the cool kids, and more often than not, it is us-the latecomers-that are left behind. If you are one of the latecomers, we know why. It is because you prefer the laid-back appearance, and so because you do not seek to find the latest trends, you always end up one-step behind. For once, would it not be nice to beat the rush and to get in their first; to be the people at the forefront of the latest fashions? Well, you can be, you just need to know which brand is the latest up-and-coming trend; and here, we are going to tell you who that is.

Just before we start though, we just want to give an example of another brand that was super edgy when it first came out but now, and within a very short space of time, has become mainstream. This brand is Superdry. It is a very popular brand, but unfortunately, it is starting to become too popular – people are now beginning to consider the brand a little too run-of-the-mill. The people who are wearing it now are seen as sheep and followers – even if they were wearing it from the start. You need to move on if you want to be seen as edgy and fashion conscious.

So, to which brand should you move on? We believe that the next brand to take the fashion world by storm is panuu clothing. Panuu clothing is a Danish designer of casual clothing that has been operational since the mid-2000s.

Panuu started out as a manufacturer of watches, in 2005, but they have since branched out into clothing. They are most highly regarded in view of their t-shirt and jumper ranges today. In fact, they are becoming increasingly popular, and you can now see their clothing in fashion stores throughout the UK. However, they are still relatively little known by the majority of people, and so now is the perfect time to start buying.

Panuu is an innovative and creative brand, and they create a fantastic clothing range that is marketed towards people in their mid-twenties to late-thirties.

Snow Fashions: Keep Warm Stylishly

A most exciting excursion to the mall after Christmas might include a visit to the better fashion stores. Here, Dillard’s is a favorite store. Sales after Christmas make shopping for Winter Fashions a wonderful excursion for Mom and Daughters.

With the onset of more snow in the Colorado Mountains and Ski Resort Weekends eminent, chatter about what to wear on the slopes and still stay toasty warm came up. We discussed sweaters, layers, fleece, and all the other varieties of cold weather wear. Then when we arrived at the store, more assortments appeared.

This season’s hottest items are insulated micro fibers. Ultra thin layers of fine fibers woven into tight fabrics or knit into silky smooth sweaters make up a wide selection of choices. With two very different daughters we scanned the racks until we located selections for Preppy styles, Jock/Athletic types, and the ever popular over 40’s Mom styles.

My favorite sweater sets, slacks, and Shetlands seemed less available this year, in designs long enough for my maturing form, but… the latest tunic styles were readily available, and I liked the long lean look of them – on the models.

My daughters found exquisite designer fashions in their sizes, layerable designs that included sleek sweater styles, wrap around pullovers, layered tops, and fitted slacks to wear under ski pants and jackets, all in micro fiber fabric that would keep out the snow, and let the rain slide right off.

Micro fiber faux furs were my favorite find. Imagine a Mink coat, in Faux Fur for less than the price of a stole. I was in heaven.

I’m enjoying the snow, more and more… Bring it on Frosty!
