In the Future, We'll All Wear Clothes Made by 3D Printers

Designers are already using 3D printers to create textiles apparently. Fashion site Ecouterre has an article on the 3D printed clothes phenomenom, and the museum of Modern Art is exhibiting the Dutch designer Freedom of Creation's works already. 
It's not just the lure of having clothes that fit properly that's appealing for designers—3D printing also helps cut down on labor costs and could be seen as reducing waste.

I don't wanna wear clothes made by 3-d printers. Something about clothes being printed like that either somewhat urks me or slightly scares me for some unknown reason.

I think I fear clothing change.

Interesting concept...

Awesome! I'd use printed clothes now if I could. That would be so cool.

3d printers are the wave of the future! Before long, you won't be buying clothes in the store, you'll be printing them at home.
