    How to become blog famous

    Each 3-D printed shoe weighs just a few ounces.

    Future Couture

    Continuum Fashion is on the industry’s cutting edge — which, in the case of its $900 bespoke shoes, means there’s no cutting at all. Using a 3-D printing technique called Selective Laser Sintering, tiny beads of durable Nylon 12 are heated and layered into a pair of made-to-measure sculptures you wear on your feet. (The same technique is used for Continuum’s custom bikinis, explains Cambridge-based cofounder Jenna Fizel.) The company’s Constrvct line of dresses, skirts, and tops — those start at $125, and Stylish Bostonian Jessica Rosenkrantz is wearing an example — are made the old-fashioned way: with fabric, thread, and sewing machine.

    Swirl A fashion-forward mix of Twitter and Tumblr, the Swirl iPhone app shows you what’s hot, then learns your preferences based on your uploads, follows, and clicks. The reason it’s useful, though, is that Swirl finds nearby stores and alerts you when items you like go on sale.

    The Fashion Project This online shop launched by two partners who met at Harvard Law School carries only gently used designer labels, and 60 percent of the proceeds goes directly to the charity of the donor’s choice. Prices start at $40 and go to $250 and beyond (there’s a nice Lanvin bag for $525, a Coach for $67.50; both benefit Big Brother Big Sister). The idea is that you’ll make more of a difference — and get more credit from the IRS — than you would by taking your castoff Guccis to a charity shop. Everybody wins.— Katy Rushlau
