3D-Printed Lingerie Makes Its Debut On The Victoria’s Secret Runway [Video]
Shapeways leverages its experience to help create an intricate piece of underwear inspired by snowflakes.
Victoria’s Secret, Swarovski, and 3D printing marketplace Shapeways have come together to create a unique pair of 3D printed wings for the upcoming VS Fashion Show. Not only was the costume made to fit model Lindsay Ellingson perfectly using a 3D scan of her figure, it was then encrusted with millions of Swarovski crystals to really make it shine. The design features a series of intertwined snowflakes which each take on a unique geometric form that when combined, creates an intricate piece of 3D printing. With names like architect Bradley Rothenberg also involved, Peter Weijmarshausen, CEO of Shapeways said the company was “thrilled to help make the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show even more dazzling.”
