Kuulpeeps, meet Shami Oshun, the 18-year-old who us printing her way into the fashion history.
Shami taught herself how to use the 3D printer.
She started using 3D printer after she had designs she knew wouldn’t be possible with fabric.
Hi Twitter, my name is Shami Oshun. I am 18. I taught myself how to 3D print in August 2017. As of today I am the youngest person and first black person to 3D print fashion. I hope this inspires other black girls to pursue careers in tech and fashion 💙 #BlackHistoryMonth pic.twitter.com/OST0ScgttM

She was even kind enough to share how she made some of her 3D printed designs.
Now, she has a pop-up shop at LA.

Oshun is reportedly the first black person to use 3D printer to make cloths.
3D printing is the process of making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, typically by laying down many thin layers of a material in succession.
