Dita Von Teese Dons a 3D Printed Gown

In a creative collaboration between Shapeways and designer Michael Schmidt and architect Francis Bitonti, a gorgeous 3D printed mesh garment was designed to fit the sensual body of Dita Von Teese.

The gown is created from 17 printed nylon pieces, dyed black, lacquered and hand adorned with over 13,000 Swarovski crystals. 

What sets apart this beautiful piece of 3D fashion from the work of others is that the mesh garment is designed with articulated joints that expand and contract with the body's movement. Instead of appearing like a sculpture or exoskeleton worn on the body, the gown is flexible and moves a step closer to behaving like fabric. Although I do wish there was actual footage showing Von Tesse moving in the garment. 

 

From the looks of it, bespoke 3D printed fashion will be here sooner than you think.
