Whether you’re looking to take your style to the next level or create the must-have look for next season, 3D printing will make you the talk of the room.
And boy are people talking!
In 2013, Shapeways, a 3D Printing service based in NYC, and the Ace Hotel collaborated with bombshell, Dita Von Teese, for this jaw-dropping gown.
The best part?
It was fully articulated and printed using a 3D printer!
By combining Fibonacci’s sequence, 3D printing, and over 12,000 Swarovski crystals; fashion took a leap into a new dimension.
Watch the video below to see just how this work of art was manufactured.
Fashionistas and designers can’t have all the fun. Techies and environmentalists should pay close attention to this collaboration as well.
This technological innovation lessens the need for paper designs and helps to eliminate some of the waste found in mass production.
Now is the opportunity to shift the conversation towards inventive partnerships to improve the sustainability and environmental impact of 3D printers.
Shapeways takes the additive manufacturing process to the next level with each of their designs.
And it just keeps getting better…
In 2014, they collaborated with Nervous System Studios to create a fully functioning dress. The improvements made the garment more comfortable to the wearer and easier to construct; without forsaking the design or style.
