Von Teese Models The World’s First 3D Printed Dress
The world’s first 3D printed dress was unveiled at the Ace Hotel in NYC and modelled by burlesque performer Dita Von Teese. The futuristic dress was designed entirely on an iPad and is constructed of 17 individual parts that are held together by 3,000 joints.
Designer Michael Schmidt and architect Francis Bitonti created the dress specifically for Dita using hardened powdered nylon that allows for movement. You may also know Schmidt for designing Lady Gaga’s famous bubble dress.
