The Vivienne Files: How to get "stress dressed"... I am asked this question often - is there anything I can do to be prepared when I have one of those mornings and I just can't get dressed?Today's a particularly appropriate day for me to write this, because I'm wearing my version of this today - head to toe black with accessories...For me, the best way to be prepared for this is to have ten items - six garments and four accessories - specifically assigned (in my mind, at least) for these days when everything feels like it's falling apart. You can work this in any color scheme, and the garments in question are an excellent base for both a travel wardrobe or a new simpler closet.You have to accept that you're going to wear a very simple monochromatic outfit, flat shoes, and no more accessories than maybe earrings or a scarf...If you don't wear skirts, you could easily substitute another pair of pants. If you don't wear dresses, I strongly encourage you to reconsider - dresses are the single easiest thing in the world to wear. The Vivienne Files: How to get "stress dressed"...

Last night at the Ace Hotel in New York to a crowd of uber-cool fashonistas and paparazzi we revealed the 3D printed gown designed by Michael Schmidt and Francis Bitonti modeled by queen of burlesque Dita Von Teese. The fully articulated gown based on the Fibonacci sequence was designed by Michael Schmidt and 3D modeled by architect Francis Bitonti to be 3D printed in Nylon by Shapeways. The gown was assembled from 17 pieces, dyed black, lacquered and adorned with over 13,000 Swarovski crystals to create a sensual flowing form. Thousands of unique components were 3D printed in a flowing mesh designed exactly to fit Dita’s body. This represents the possibility to 3D print complex, customized fabric like garments designed exactly to meet a specific person or need. As we see the material properties of 3D printing mature to produce more fine, flexible materials we will see more and more forays into fashion such as this. Thanks to the Ace Hotel and Albert Sanchez for images. Revealing Dita Von Teese in a Fully Articulated 3D Printed Gown
