In March 2013, burlesque star Dita Von Teese grabbed the headlines yet again, but this time for modelling the world’s first fully articulated dress produced with a 3D printer.

 

The concept might still sound like the stuff of fantasy, but the 3D printing age is closer than you might think and has profound implications for retailers.

Embracing change

 

The Von Teese dress was the creation of designer Michael Schmidt, architect Francis Bitonti and printing firm Shapeways.

 

While this particular design was customised to the model and for purely promotional purposes (not least because it was embellished with over 13,000 Swarovski crystals!), retailers have already started using 3D printing for more commercial projects.

 

At Paris Fashion Week this January, Dutch designer van Herpen’s eleven-piece collection featured two 3D printed ensembles including a form-fitting dress.

 

Meanwhile, in February 2013 Nike Inc. unveiled its Nike Vapor Laser Talon, a boot which incorporates a 3D printed plate enabling it to be contoured to the particular player and increase efficiency.

 

Even young designers are getting on the bandwagon, with 3D printers being installed at fashion schools such as the London College of Fashion.
