Fashion will become digital, but don’t take our word for it. Instead, look to the innovative fashions of Danit Peleg. In this week’s episode of the Electric Runway podcast, we speak with the rising star who has become infamous for her 3D printed fashions. The Israeli fashion-tech designer rose to fame when a video capturing her school project went viral, racking up more than 5 million views across Facebook. Since then, she has become the postergirl for 3D printed clothing, and her work has been exhibited all over the world.
“I always compare what’s happening to the fashion industry to what happened to the music industry,” Danit says. “I can email you my dresses. All of my designs are on my computer, and if you have a 3D-printer, you can print them at home.” In her interview with Amanda Cosco, Danit shares her thoughts on how digitization is changing every aspect of the fashion industry, and how innovations will allow us to create a more customized and personal customer experience. Their conversation touches on the “newness” of 3D printing plus the opportunities to come, including the sustainability aspect; With 3D printing, there’s the opportunity to move towards printing only what we need and recycling filament when we’re done with it, making for a truly circular fashion economy.
