Fashion Designer Asher Levine Launches MakerBotted Sunglasses at New York Fashion Week

Last night at Jefferson Market in Manhattan, a lucky New York Fashion Week crowd caught a glimpse of the upcoming Fall/Winter 2012 collection of MakerBot’s latest artist-in-residency collaborator, fashion designer Asher Levine.

Levine — known for his designs for Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, and Bruno Mars — has been working with MakerBot to create custom-made sunglasses to be printed on the MakerBot Replicator, and models were wearing these unique fabrications at the event. This collaboration marks the first time that a designer will be offering a piece from a collection to the public via an open-source download through Look for the sunglasses on early this week!

What’s more, this also marks the first time in history that a MakerBot Replicator has itself participated as a runway model. Three of our most svelte Replicator prototypes printed away, broody and glamorous, at the feet of the other fashion models while tightly-packed guests and media snapped photos and clamored for interviews with Asher Levine and Bre Pettis. MakerBots also played a role in the music played at the venue — DJ Jet Black built beats from MakerBot Sound Library #001 into a distinctive all-MakerBot soundtrack for the evening (Check out the track here).

Thanks to Annelise for great shots of the MakerBotted glasses in action. Special shout-out also to MakerBot’s Elliot Cohen for creating the digital model for the glasses and Art Evangelist Michelle Zatta for putting several weeks into fabricating them.
