Victoria’s Secret, Swarovski, and 3D printing marketplace Shapeways have joined forces to give Victoria’s Secret models their 3D printed angel’s wings.
The 3D printed wings were designed by architect Bradley Rothenberg by 3D scanning Victoria’s Secret model Lindsay Ellingson to make sure wings fit to her body. Then Shapeways printed the snowflake wings, which were covered with millions of Swarovski crystals.
“Shapeways’ 3D printing technology brings an unprecedented design element to the famed Victoria’s Secret wings, showing the immense opportunity 3D printing brings to creating beautiful, customizable items. This partnership helps push the boundaries and show what’s possible for the 3D printing industry, within fashion and beyond.” – Peter Weijmarshausen, Shapeways CEO
