studio roosegaarde: intimacy dresses made from e-foil

 

 

 

studio roosegaarde has teamed up with fashion designers maartje dijkstra and anouk wipprecht to create the variable transparency intimacy dresses. these two dresses are made from white and black e-foil, and react to the presence of people by  becoming transparent. the white version was made with dijkstra, while the black one was a collaboration with wipprecht. the garments are both made from a single flat sheet of material, cut into a pattern and fastened to give it volume. the intention of their development is to allow the wearer’s social interactions to determine the level of transparency. the designers are also working  on a bag to go with the dress, along with an architecture structure that utilizes the same technology.
