Kuala Lumpur was the scene of the first 3D printed fashion show to take place in Asia. Designer Melinda Looi of Malaysia teamed with 3D print service Materialise to produce the works shown. 
Five startling creations were shown by models who wore the pieces in bodysuits to focus attention on the 3D printed articles. 
A project such as this is quite daunting. Not only the designer had to painstakingly create the detailed 3D models, but they had to be manufactured as well. A team of 6-8 modelers, engineers and designers took months to produce the pieces. 
The creativity possible in fashion is limited only by imagination; 3D printing makes it real.
