Using animals as inspiration for fashion isn't something new. Instead, many designers are looking to incorporate these creatures into their products in many ways.

London based footwear designer Chaemin Hong uses 3D printing in the design of her A/W 2013-14 collection, which consists of 10 different styles of future-forward pumps. "The collection is inspired from animal's bone." says the designer.

"Humankind is at the top of the food chain. The moment that human beings climb up to the top of that pyramid, they act as if they are completed unrelated to the food chain pyramid.

"Human beings observe the animals in the natural state on TV, and watch the animals' survival instinct as if they are surprised. Bones of the animals, sources of protein, that were thrown away leave behind animal form. It is not like the animals disappeared: Instead, they were merely dismantled. When the bones re-combine to formulate a new form to create yet another creation, I wonder whether they could instill life into something new instead of merely serving as the remnant of the food chain." explains Hong.

Hong said her design is just combination of the dismantled bones. The concept that got started with the concept of new creations, sought to re-create the feel and shape by using diverse techniques. Digital imaging and 3D printing helps the designer to provide products with very distinct tastes without any limitation.
