Victoria’s Secret Fashion Model in 3-D printed wings

Victoria’s Secret annual Fashion Show this year, presented a very elaborate costume in the form of a pair of “angel wings” created on a 3-D printer. Victoria Secret Model Lindsay Ellingson wore the costume.

Victoria’s Secret, a division of Limited Brands (LB), partnering with 3-D printing service Shapeways, created the exotic looking wings. Architect Bradley Rothenberg was the designer.

The 3D printing company scanned the model’s body with the use of a 3-D scanner and printed her wings layer by layer with nylon plastic. The amazing wings were then encrusted with millions of Swarovski crystals.
Runway model Barbara Fialho, whose measurements match Ellingson’s, assisted the design team in fine tuning the costume by standing in for her during the fittings. Fialho, who also walked in the show, says she expects technology to play a larger role in the future in high fashion.

This is by no means the first time 3-D printing technology has made its way to the runway. In 2012, fashion designer Asher Levine used Makerbot’s 3-D printers and printed multicolored glasses for the models.

Shapeways designer said fashion designers and jewelers are adopting 3-D printing more and more in recent times.

“It’s perfect because in fashion and jewelry, there are seasons — every season there’s something new, and with 3-D printing you can do something very new in a short period of time,” said Scott.
