During Fall Fashion Week, Nemo kicked our asses and required us to reschedule our 3D printing events at Ace Hotel New York. We're back with even more fahr' in the belly, partnering with Shapeways to present an interactive encounter of technology and design that explores how digital technology can revolutionize the future of fashion — with Michael Schmidt and some of today's most forward-thinking CAD artists and analog jewelry designers.
An interactive bespoke jewelry bazaar pairs some of the most creative jewelry designers with CAD modelers to offer participants the chance to realize their own custom-made pieces. Designers include Ten Thousand Things, Ursa Major, Verameat, In God We Trust, Lindsey Adelman, Anna Sheffield and Chris Habana working with CAD modelers Kostika Spaho, thefuturefuture and Duann Scott.
At 2pm, we'll also play host to a symposium on 3D printing, the metaphor of making and fashion's future from four important points of view. Fashion designer Michael Schmidt — creator of wardrobes for luminaries like Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Deborah Harry and Madonna -- is also a long-time Ace friend who created the rope installation in the lobby of Ace Hotel & Swim Club. He is joined by Brooks Hagan, textile artist and Acting Head of the Textile Department at RISD, and 3D design evangelists Michael Curry and Duann Scott from MakerBot and Shapeways, respectively.
This event is open to the public and all ages.
Shapeways, our partner in presenting New Dimensions, is the world's leading 3D printing marketplace and community, with the objective to harness the power of 3D printing to make design accessible, personal and inspiring.
