Posen revealed he told Linda Boff, GE’s chief marketing officer at Met Gala 2018, that he’d love to showcase a new breed of stunning gowns a year later. So she arranged a series of meetups for him together with scientists, designers, and engineers at GE Additive who use the technology in their manufacturing processes.

Touring their facility in Pittsburgh and seeing them in action inspired him to explore 3d Printing and incorporate it into his own creations.

A Real Glamour

Posen revealed he is naming his 3d Printing ensemble “A Real Glamour.” His creations include a Prince purple metallic gown made of a 3d Printed palm-leaf sculpture and 300 yards of tulle. Garner also wore a 3d-printed headpiece made of gold strips, paired with a gold ombre gown.

Posen then opted to use the technology to create the actual body of the outfit for Dobrev and Dunn’s outfits, printing a total of 21 individual roses and having them affixed to a frame made with titanium that served as Dunn’s dress.

Posen said it took five months for his team to refine and perfect the rose petals to make Dunn’s perfect gown. He also created a magical lacquer made with color palettes to shine and create a shifting optical illusion every time Jourdan moved. Now that’s a dress fit for Hollywood Royalty!
