Fashion designer Zac Posen, GE Additive, and Protolabs showed innovative, sculptural 3D printed garments and accessories, inspired by the concept of freezing natural objects in motion, at the recently held Met Gala in US. GE Additive is a world leader in additive design and manufacturing. Protolabs is the digital manufacturing source for rapid prototyping.

Over the past six months, Zac Posen and his creative team have explored a range of 3D printing and digital technologies with design engineers and 3D printing experts from GE Additive and Protolabs. This collaboration has resulted in breath-taking results - unlike any 3D printed garments produced before, according to a press release by GE Additive.

Jourdan Dunn wore a custom Zac Posen x GE Additive x Protolabs rose gown. The gown featured 21 total petals, averaging 20 inches in size and weighing 1 lb. each. The petals are fastened in place by a modular cage which is invisible from the outside. The petals are made of Accura Xtreme White 200 durable plastic and printed on a stereolithography (SLA) machine. The cage that fastens the petals are made of Titanium (Ti-64) printed on a GE Additive Arcam EBM machine.

Nina Dobrev wore a custom Zac Posen x GE Additive x Protolabs bustier. The bustier is a clear printed dress with 4-piece assembly for custom fit. The interior is designed to perfectly match Nina Dobrev’s 3D re-creation. The bustier is made of Somos Watershed XC 11122 plastic and printed on a stereolithography (SLA) machine.

Katie Holmes wore a custom Zac Posen gown with a Zac Posen x GE Additive x Protolabs palm leaf collar accessory. The pearlescent purple palm leaves are draped over the shoulders and attached to the gown at the neckline. The palm leaves were made of Accura 60 plastic and printed on a stereolithography (SLA) machine.

Julia Garner wore a custom Zac Posen ombré silver to gold lamé gown with a Zac Posen x GE Additive x Protolabs headpiece. The intricate printed vine headpiece with leaf and berry embellishments was printed as a single piece and made of Nylon 12 plastic and printed on a Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) machine.

Deepika Padukone wore a custom Zac Posen metallic pink lurex jacquard gown. This gown included Zac Posen x GE Additive x Protolabs embroidery which was sewn on. The embroidery was made of Accura 5530 plastic and printed on a stereolithography (SLA) machine. The embroidery is vacuum metallised, and centre painted with Pantone 8081 C.

Zac Posen wore a Brooks Brothers made-to-measure purple velvet shawl collar dinner jacket and black tuxedo pant with coordinating pink vest, tuxedo shirt and bow tie. He also wore Zac Posen x GE Additive x Protolabs palm leaf brooches. These lapel brooches were designed to mimic the larger palm leaf in a scaled down design and are made of high resolution Accura 5530 printed on stereolithography (SLA) and Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) machines. The brooches were finished in pearlescent purple and gold paint.

Andrew Garfield wore a Brooks Brothers made-to-measure blue tailcoat with coordinating light blue vest, dress shirt, and bow tie. He also wore the Zac Posen x GE Additive x Protolabs Rose cuff links. These cuff links will be a dramatic red and gold which will represent a scaled down version of the rose gown, with Zac Posen’s logo integrated into the design. The rose cuff links were made of Microfine green material and printed on a stereolithography (SLA) machine. The cuff links were finished with colour changing red and gold paint. (GK)
