Now this is some future sh*t. 

Last night, Dita Von Teese premiered the first ever 3D printed dress.

The burlesque dancer wore a dress created by Michael Schmidt, who has also created costumes for Cher and Lady Gaga.

This time around, with the help of architect Francis Bitoni, Michael used digital rendering technology to design the dress and then collaborated with Shapeways, a 3D printing company, to create the dress with a fabric-like substance called powdered nylon. The final product was painted black and covered with 12,000 black Swarovski crystals.

Since the dress is composed more of paper than actual fabric, it’s not totally wearable, and we’re almost positive that Dita didn’t sit at any point last night – but she looked damn good and isn’t that what matters? 

Check out the picture of the dress above.
