Today, it might comprise armfuls of Céline; in the future, however, you might just need a 3D printer.New technology could see the 3D printer become the modern equivalent of a sewing machine: simply download a design, customise it according to your body measurements, and print off a tailored garment. READ: Model Coco Rocha explores the role of 3D printing in her first column for PC Mag The 38-year-old designer Catherine Wales is on a mission to democratise fashion via 3D printing. "The fashion industry is a bully," she says, "manipulating you into wearing or feeling a certain way." First on the hit list: size labels in garments. "A size 8 is such a specific set of measurements; people should be a little more free." A model wears Catherine Wales's chromosome-inspired corset. Photo: Christine Kreiselmaier Wales has produced a collection of 3D-printed accessories that can be custom-designed to fit any body shape and printed on demand. This week, two designs from her debut collection, entitled Project DNA, will go on show at the Design Museum as part of a new exhibition, The Future is Here: A New Industrial Revolution , which explores how digital technology is revolutionising manufacturing.
