I think that this is wayyyy too much work to look really awful. From wired.com:
“A dress by Dutch designer brings together fashion and technology in an unusual way. The dress includes valves that are controlled to pump ink slowly when the piece is worn, creating interesting patterns and a one-of-a-kind outfit for every wearer.
The dress called ‘Pseudomorph’ has been created by designer Anouk Wipprecht. The neck piece works with pneumatic valves and a system that allows the ink to be flow through the fabric. The electronic circuits that control the valve are powered by a 9-volt battery.”
Since when was a battery powered neck brace fashionable? If I wanted to have paint splattered all over me, I could just walk into my kindergarten class and have my students chuck finger paint at me. They would probably love it, and fashion week people would probably say I’m a genius. Watch the video to see what the dresses look like after their “transformation.” Heinous.
