The Future Of Fashion - 3D Printing Technology Charters A Course Into High Fashion

In a recent article by Joe Kucharski; an Assistant Professor Of Theatre, costume designer and writer, which appeared in Guise Magazine, Kucharski talked about a recent dress designed using 3D printing technology for Dita Von Teese. The dress was a collaboration between a famous dress designer Michael Schmidt and architect Francis Bitonti.

3D technology is only starting to emerge as a tool for architects and industrial designers and perhaps anarchists attempting to make their own guns at home, but the vast majority of us would perhaps have no interaction with that technology on a daily level. So at a recent conference Schmidt was ask to collaborate with architect Bitonti to turn 3D technology into something which could be worn by burlesque sensation Dita Von Teese. The dress is ground-breaking in what it is set to offer mainstream customers in the near future. It is a chance to move away from traditional thread warp and weft weaving of cloth to a new medium of fashion which has even more limitless potential. Well, not entirely limitless. 3D technology is based on polymers and in this instance Dita is wearing a series of Nylon panels which otherwise might have been used in an iPhone case. We should not get carried away just yet, there is a lot of work to be done between now and then, but this is perhaps one small step for man, or in Dita's case, a feminine woman.
