Shapeways Plus Swarovski Plus Victoria’s Secret Equals?

By on November 13th, 2013 in Design


When Victoria’s Secret is putting on a fashion show, you know it’s going to be interesting, especially when they asked Shapeways to help produce a “Snow Queen” costume for the event. 
Shapeways asked designer Bradley Rothenberg to design the costume, which is “festooned with thousands of Swarovski crystals”. You’ll be able to see this incredibly intricate costume because the entire fashion show will be appear on CBS on December 10th. 
Designed with Maya and Rhino3D, likely using generative approaches and 3D printed in Nylon at Shapways, the costume is one of the more complex projects we’ve seen. 
Shapeways has detailed the entire process of producing the work. Read more at the link below.
