Michael Schmidt is no stranger to the fashion world, he has created costumes for Lady GaGa and Cher.
But when burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese wanted something bold and daring to wear to an event, Schmidt had to include architect Francis Bitoni and Shapeways, a 3D printing company.
Digital rendering technology was used for the design and Shapeways created the dress with a fabric-like substance called powdered nylon.
The final product was painted black and covered with 12,000 black Swarovski crystals.
