9.  Sabyasachi Mukherjee, renowned fashion designer

10.  Me :) I am the fulcrum of this chat you see, because the idea is mine :)

To discuss what?

3D printing has already found Industrial use (what with automobile maker Ford reporting almost 25% savings due to 3D printing).  When is the world of Fashion going to embrace 3D printing? How do we do it?  Wouldn't it be fun to have designer garments directly 3D printed from the Internet, wear it and strut out in style?  It would be even greater fun to self design one's attire using online software, store in the Cloud on the Internet (so others can use one's design while one gets paid for one's copyright of course), 3D print it and step out with song in one's heart and season (spring-summer and fall/autumn-winter) at one's feet ;-) The fashionista in me is already dancing with unparalleled joy :)  Intellectual property rights, piracy, authentication et al need to be taken of, of course.  So, this is a fashionable chat that would be in vogue, you bet!
