Wearing Your Drink: Dresses Made From Fermented Wine

Certainly brings new meaning to 'cocktail dresses', amirite? No? Nevermind then.

Seen here looking terrified at whatever she sees off camera (presumably a dog f***ing a tripod), a model wears a dress made from fermented wine. Mmmm, I bet that smells goooooood.

Micro'be' fermented fashion investigates the practical and cultural biosynthesis of clothing - to explore the possible forms and cultural implications of futuristic dress-making and textile technologies.


Instead of lifeless weaving machines producing the textile, living microbes will ferment a garment.

By combining art and science knowledge and with a little inventiveness, the ultimate goal will be to produce a bacterial fermented seamless garment that forms without a single stitch.

Call me old fashioned, but the only drinks I wear are the ones I spill on myself. "It's 7AM and you smell like bourbon." Haha, my Eau de Intervention? What if I told you it was my roommate's birthday and he made me take shots as soon as we got up? "You used that excuse a couple months ago." Dammit, I TOLD you -- he was born on Mercury, their years are DIFFERENT.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots of the icky sticky.

Thanks to Carolyn, who just started manufacturing cocktail dresses made out of Appletinis in her bathroom and is about to get the cops called by a neighbor thinking she's cooking meth.
