3D Printshow New York // Digital Fashion

Last week stood as the ninth 3D Printshow event that I've been heavily involved in producing. It was my second time working on the show in New York, and I have to admit that my love affair with the city has only deepened after another 8 days in Manhattan. We staged the four day show at Center 548 in Chelsea, right down the road from some of the most interesting gallery spaces - including Comme des Garçons and Gagosian Gallery. Needless to say it was fantastic to work in such a creative part of the city, as well as being so close to the water (West) and the High Line.

I curated and produced eight conference sessions over three days - but my absolute favourite (by a long way) was the Fashion session, which explored notions and practice within New York's computational fashion scene. It wasn't just the content of the afternoon (or that fact that most of the speakers are now quite good friends), but it was the relaxed yet high-level feel of the event. I was extremely proud of have put together such an amazing afternoon, and I couldn't have been happier to see it filled with such interesting people.

Take a look at the schedule below, and catch up with some images of the show via our flickr. Next up: #3DPS London in 4 weeks.
