Dita von Teese Flaunts 3D-Printed Dress that Was Designed on an iPad

 |  |  |  |  March 8, 2013


3D printing technology is amazing. People are already using 3D printers to make cookie cutters, gadgets, replacement partstoys and even robots. Now they’re moving forward into the realm of fashion by printing full-length dresses.

Here’s burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese sporting a custom and truly one-of-a-kind 3D-printed creation.

3D Printed Dress

The dress was a product of a collaboration between designer Michael Schmidt and architect Francis Bitonti. They didn’t just pull this sexy number out of their head, because it’s actually based on the Fibonacci sequence.

When they were ready with their design, they sent it off to 3D-printing service Shapeways, who printed out the gown’s seventeen meshed pieces. They assembled the parts to form one dress and voila – instant sexiness.

Shapeways designer Duann Scott had this to say about the role of 3D printing in fashion: “Traditionally, all garments are either a weave or a stitch. And with 3-D printing, we can … introduce something completely different. So we can grow designs rather than just using something that’s centuries-old technology. It’s a whole way to move forward in fashion and clothing and textiles.”

Right-o!
