Friday Roundup: Laser Cut Fashion

This week's round up features some of the best, creative and clever uses of the laser cutter when it comes to creating textiles and fashion. Early adopters of the technology were mainly couture designers such as John Galliano who created a beige laser-cut suede garment (pictured below) in 2005. Fast forward six years and laser cut fashion has hit the mainstream — big time! Fast fashion retailers from Top Shop to ASOS are now carrying laser cut clothes, shoes and accessories. And of course we leave it to the independent designers such as Principle Pleasure to bring a bit of irony and whimsy to laser cut clothing that often lean towards the ornate and decorative.

I agree! I love Lily Heine's work as well.

My favourites may still be the works of Lilly Heine that are also on this site: http://www.fashioningtech.com/photo/lilly-heine-ax10

I know it's not fashion and really they are a bit too dramatic for me, but still I quite like these: http://www.contemporist.com/2009/02/07/future-flora-pendant-lights-...

The 3D potential of this particular use of lasercutting appeals to me.
