Designer Michael Schmidt and architect Francis Bitonti combined their talents to create a lattice-like dress for burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese.
Created from a total of 17 printed nylon pieces, they have been dyed black, lacquered and hand adorned with more than 13,000 Swarovski crystals to create a dream dress. The mesh garment itself has been designed with articulated joints, and these will expand and contract with the body’s movement, allowing the gown to be flexible and functioning more like fabric.
I have to say, it is a really stunning dress, and Dita fills it out quite well.
