Recently at the Ace Hotel in in New York City, the world’s first completely 3D printed dress was unveiled. Created by Michael Schimdt and 3D modeled by Francis Bitonti, the dress was printed in 17 pieces constructed in nylon.
Once printed at the Shapeways factory, the dress was dyed black and adorned with over 13,000 Swarovski crystals.
As is fitting this creation was custom fit to the model Dita Von Teese’s body. This could signal the future of fashion… A 3D printed, bespoke future.
However, there’s been no word yet on how much this future would cost.
