Ace Hotel x Shapeways 3-D Dress Unveiling with Michael Schmidt on muse Dita Von Teese

We’re so glad to have been a part of such an innovative moment in fashion and tech, as designer Michael Schmidt (in collaboration with Francis Bittonti Studio) unveiled the world’s first fully articulated 3-D printed gown on muse Dita Von Teese (made possible by the awesome people at Shapeways).

Watch the design process, from Michael’s inspiration from the golden ratio, working with the 3-D printing technology, and the final product.

Photos above by the always lovely Jeff Meltz of The Culture of Me, who captured the likes of Dita Von Teese herself, Blondie, Andrej Pejic, our party friends Chris, Joey & Claire, and us with fav jewelry designer Anna Sheffield.

Also shout outs to the rest of our dance party crew who came out- we’re looking at you Justin, Christina, Corey, Mac, Freddy, and Adam.
