Black Panther

Designed by Stella McCartney, Shuri’s (Letitia Wright) dress was designed to look futuristic and was inspired by a lab coat, drawing on the characters talents in the film. 

Queen Ramonda’s (Angela Bassett) dress look liked an intricate, stunning lace design, but is actually 3D printed created in collaboration with Julie Koerner.
