It shouldn't really count as news when Dita Von Teese models something, but she recently showed off a 3-D printed nylon gown based on the Fibonacci sequence, which is cool enough to merit a little discussion, I think. The gown was designed by Michael Schmidt and Francis Bitonti, and Shapeways handled the 3-D printing. From there, the gown's 17 individual pieces were assembled, dyed black, and bedazzled with Swarovski crystals. The idea here was to show off the possibilities of 3-D printing as much as Dita's fabulous body, but she makes it difficult to gauge whether this project was a success or not.
