Now I’ve been hearing about this 3D printing technology for a quick second but not regarding apparel.  A 3D printing company called “Shapeways” printed this lovely dress that was designed by  Michael Schmidt &  Francis Bitonti.  The material is made out of nylon, dyed black, lacquered and is covered with over 13,000 Swarovski crystals.  Pretty amazing!  I love the design and of course Dita Von Teese (whom I admire her style tremendously) looks fabulous!

What I found interesting is that the sleeves remind me of Tina Turner’s character “Auntie Entity” in the Mad Max movie from looooong ago.  Maybe they were inspired by it?
