#OSHW @ #NYFW — MakerBot Prints Hit The Runway at New York Fashion Week

When I first started this job, I never thought I’d be linking to the MTV Style blog, but… here we are. From MTV Style:

You may know Asher Levine for creating those to-die-for leather pieces for Lady Gaga (um, oversized motorcycle jacket anyone?), but the menswear designer has come a long way since his big 2010 debut. We stopped by his fall 2012 presentation, and we were immediately engulfed into his dimly-lit, post apocalyptic world filled with military-style jumpsuits, light-up helmets, and futuristic sunglasses. He carried over some of the alien-esque accents from last season (think: rubber tentacles and claws), but what mostly caught our eye were the glowing MakerBot printers busily working in the back of the room.

Aside from a typo where they refer to the MakerBot as open-source software, this is a really neat article, with gushing praise for the coolness of the Replicator.

Our friends at MakerBot wrote up their own blog post about this too, with more info and great photos!
