F*ck Ups: Dissolvable Dresses

F*ck Ups: Dissolvable Dresses emerging fashion

The world’s first dissolvable dress is a brainchild of British Professor Helen Storey and Professor Tony Ryan, a leading chemist. The fabric is made from a clear polymer, polyvinyl alcohol. The dresses dissolve at a pace that they will be able to survive a sweaty party. In an upcoming exhibition, eight dissolvable dresses will be put into enormous goldfish bowls where they will slowly liquefy.

“The dresses Helen has created are a metaphor for the beautiful things we create and use but never really think about and just throw away. In your lifetime you throw away around 20 tonnes of packaging material. We want people to think about that. But it has made us think more seriously about science, too,” Professor Ryan said.

The eco friendly dresses are embellished with lovely flowers that slowly leave off a dye when they dissolve. The dresses are based on the principle of self-destructible plastics established by Professor Ryan. Another products that are beautiful amalgamation of art and science include dissolvable bottles and water purification pillow.

Thanks EcoFriend
