3D printed lingerie hits the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

The ladies weren’t the only ones that made headlines at the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. A Swarovski-encrusted, 3D-printed lingerie made its way onto the runway via supermodel Lindsay Ellingson and amazed both fashion and industrial designers alike. In order to create the lingerie, the designers had to scan Ellingson’s body to get the exact fit.

The wardrobe was then printed in lightweight nylon, then embedded with millions of Swarovski crystals. The outfit was topped off with a hat, a corset, and a pair of wings (they are, after all, Angels.)

Victoria’s Secret collaborated with architect Bradley Rothenberg, Swarovski, and Shapeways, the company that printed the piece.
