Make Your Own



This is so freaky – I don't know if anyone remembers a post of mine from last month about how I want to invent a paper-like fabric for dresses that you can draw on...? So, imagine my surprise when I saw this fabulous story on accidental mysteries. These super talented people have done it! Michiel Schuurman and Berber Soepboer are the designers who have developed the Colour-In Dress. They also collaborated on the very funky Replacement Dress (below). Both were made for a show last year at the prestigious De Ploeg textile factory. The idea with both dresses is that the wearer is responsible for part of how the dress looks, either in decoration or construction.

What is it they say about "there's no such thing as an original idea"...? That happens all the time I think. (I'm just glad someone's done it!) K
