personalized fashion

a trip to the FIT museum with its thousands of fashion pieces from 500 years made me wonder why we can't have it all? where is the startup that lets me pick whatever i like from a catalog that spans the centuries, takes my measurements and then produces the garments in a fully automated factory? failing that, how about leveraging that same labor that now brings us crappy jeans? a catalog so vast my require some recommendation technology to help me make picks, too. update: seefeld points to coco myles. wired reports on a 3D scanner for taking body measurements.
