Fashion from a 3-D printer

“Dita’s Gown,” a dress designed for Dita Von Teese using 3-D printing technology — which is most often used to create objects and architectural models — caused a stir when it was first shown at a symposium on 3-D design in New York last March. On June 12, it will be the West Coast’s turn to marvel, when one of its masterminds, the costume and jewelry designer Michael Schmidt, discusses the dress.
