Little Miss Muffet

Sat on her tuffet

In her Vera Wang gown

When along came Science Steve

Who added a splash of LED

To her red carpet dress.

With all the innovations in wearables it was only a matter of time before we began to see science-fiction-fashion become a reality; a glimpse into what fashion will be like in say 2050.

One of my favorite fashion/science experiments is “Wonderland”, a collaboration between designer Helen Storey and scientist Tony Ryan.  Their disappearing dresses are beautiful garments made of materials that are water-soluble.  Therefore, when the garment hits the water it disintegrates into displays of color.
