If you don’t know what a 3D printer is, it will scan an item and make a 3D replica of it. It’s amazing technology. And the fact that Dita was a part of this event is even better.
The fully articulated gown based on the Fibonacci sequence was designed by Michael Schmidt and 3D modeled by architect Francis Bitonti to be 3D printed in Nylon by 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. [Shapeways.com]
