Transformer Dresses

Is this unbelievable or what?

This particular runway show dates back to 2007, but I'm still in awe of the innovation and creativity, not to mention the technology! Of course after seeing this video, I immediately went to Google to find out more about the designer- Hussein Chalayan. I found this very interesting article interviewing one of the technicians commissioned to help create these amazing dresses. It's very informative, not to mention inspiring. In my opinion, this is exactly the type of thing that makes fashion exciting- it's a collaboration, a joining of two seemingly incongruous industries and the result is essentially performance art.
