Whilst CAD has already had a major impact on the fashion industry, there are still exciting developments on the horizon.

One of the most notable fashion designers to adopt the technology is Iris van Herpen, who has employed 3D-printed pieces in several of her collections, beginning with 2010’s Crystallization. Van Herpen began using 3D printing after being “struck by the complexity and detailing it was able to do”, and her striking and sometimes unsettling pieces have pushed the boundaries of both fashion and technology.

It’s not only the catwalk that is feeling the impact.

Both Teen Vogue and Business of Fashion have listed 3D fashion engineering as amongst the most important burgeoning careers within the industry. It’s clear that computer-aided design and manufacturing will continue to change this diverse industry, pushing forward the boundaries of fashion.
