New York fashion designer Francis Bitonti, of the famed Dita Dress and the recently launched Verlan Dress, created quite a stir with his 3D printed fashion creations.
“I was pleasantly surprised with how easy the MakerBots were to use,” said Bitonti. “The quality was on par with any industrial 3D printed pieces we have commissioned previously. It was great to have the MakerBot Desktop 3D Printers in the studio, they provided the students the possibility to have immediate feedback on their designs by printing them during the design process.”
The dress took a total of 400 hours of printing!
“The idea was to create a landscape of geometric effects, things that would have different material behaviours in different parts of the body,” Bitonti said.
