The future of fashion is closely intertwined with the future of technology, and one of the biggest innovations of the last five years has been the introduction of 3D printing into fashion’s production process. Aaron Rowley is the co-founder of Electroloom, a new 3D printing company based in San Francisco that’s working to make desktop garment design and output a reality. On today’s show, Aaron will share about the company’s inception, the printed prototypes that their team is currently working on, how the Electroloom printer differs from traditional 3D printer models, the future possibilities of Electroloom, and more.

And I’ve got a playlist chock full of new music today, featuring a brand new single from Galway garage pop band So Cow, Dublin’s The Might Stef, North Carolina duo The Rosebuds, Seattle’s Lusine, and Toronto’s beach pop group Alvvays. So join us now for a look at the future of fashion, on BreakThru Radio!
