Dita Von Teese Wears World’s First Fully 3D-Printed Dress
Earlier this week, burlesque performer Dita Von Teese debuted the world’s first fully 3D-printed dress at the Ace Hotel in New York City.
The creation of designer Michael Schmidt and architect Francis Bitonti, the dress was designed entirely on the iPad and consisits of 17 unique moving pieces that are held together by 3,000 joints—it was also specifically designed to suit Von Teese’s body.
The garment is specially designed to move with the body of its wearer—incredibly, the hard plastic material appears to flow in a sensual manner.
Draped over Von Teese’s beautiful curves, the high-tech, perforated dress looks like something out of a sexy, futuristic movie.
Do you think we’d be wearing 3D-printed garments in the future, and spare the lives of cotton farmers?
