These incredible women inventors are creating our future and its gonna be incredible.
27 year old Isreali Danit Peleg has made it possible for us to 3D print our own clothes at home with her fully 3D Printed fashion collection.
Korean American Harvard graduate Grace Choi made a 3D printer you can buy for under $300 and will allow anyone to print any colour of makeup at home using normal printer ink.
This means people who didn’t have access to shops before because of disabilities or living in a remote area can have access to clothing and makeup as and when they need it without paying for the cost of delivery or store mark-ups.
People who cant find clothes in their size or to fit their bodies can easily size up garments before printing and people who aren’t one of the four shades of beige that makeup companies produce can finally find products in their shade.
Peleg’s technology could lead to 3D printed menstrual pads and nappies meaning they can be printed in private without embarrassment at the checkout as they’re needed. It could even lead to 3D printed medical supplies in hospitals!
Choi’s technology could rid the beauty industry of its ridiculous mark-ups and provide more accessible beauty choices for everyone no matter their skin tone or budget. She has made it possible for us to take a photo of our friends lipstick and print it out- using normal printer ink. This could mean an end to cosmetic animal testing and a new future of accessible, cruelty-free beauty.
3D printers are a revolution- they’re going to be a huge part of our lives and its amazing women inventors like Peleg and Choi that are ensuring the human race can access their full potential.
Please remember their names!!! They deserve credit for shaping our future.
“There’s no denying that fashion, art and culture add context and sentiment to some of the most important conversations of today, as well as giving us another method of communication. The fashion industry absolutely has the ability to make a difference if it so chooses; fashion brands have channels of communication and powers of persuasion most politicians or corporations can only dream of. And at the end of the day, designers are inventors, visionaries and leaders of movements. And these are the people who can change the world.” Meet the team behind VINAYA and discover how they’re bridging the gap between fashion and technology to elevate human potential…
