The First Fully-Articulated 3D Printed Gown, Featuring Dita Von Teese
Although dutch designer Iris van Herpen debuted two 3D-printed outfits made in collaboration with US-based designer Neri Oxman and Austrian architect Julia Koerner during her runway show at Paris Fashion Week in January, the worlds first ‘fully-articulated’ 3D printed gown was showcased recently by the stunning burlesque dancer and model Dita Von Teese.
Designed by Michael Schmidt Studios in collaboration with Francis Bitoni Studio and Shapeways, the 3D printing service provider, the gown was conceived based on a numerical formula that quantifies the ideals of beauty, known as the golden ratio, which was developed in the 13th century by Italian mathematician Fibonacci.
The gown is wearable, fluid and is made entirely of 3D printed pieces composed of articulated joints that expand and contract with the undulations of the body.
