Ein Kleid aus dem 3D-Drucker für Dita Von Teese

Designer Michael Schmidt und Architekt Francis Bitonti haben zusammen für Dita Von Teese ein Kleid entworfen und bei Shapeways – die mit dem Super Mario Bros. Möbius Strip – drucken lassen. Der Clou an dem Dings: Es ist kein starres Korsett, sondern besteht aus 17 Teilen, die sich ineinander verwinden lassen. Mehr Fotos und ein interessantes Making of Video gibt’s im Blog von Shapeways.

The gown was assembled from 17 pieces, dyed black, lacquered and adorned with over 13,000 Swarovski crystals to create a sensual flowing form. Thousands of unique components were 3D printed in a flowing mesh designed exactly to fit Dita’s body.  This represents the possibility to 3D print complex, customized fabric like garments designed exactly to meet a specific person or need.  As we see the material properties of 3D printing mature to produce more fine, flexible materials we will see more and more forays into fashion such as this.  At first it is at the boundaries of haute couture and art but as we have seen with Nike using 3D printing in footwear, we will see more and more 3D printing creep into the world of clothing and fashion until it becomes ubiquitous…
