Hussein Chalayan Creates "Big Bang" Mechanical Dresses

Feb 29 2008 - 10:40am

Hussein Chalayan [1] is certainly no stranger to incorporating technology into his fashions, as he already showcased a series of LED laser dresses earlier this year in Tokyo. During this week's Paris Fashion Week [2], Hussein presented his Fall collection, which included high-tech dresses used to symbolize the Big Bang.

As discussed on Boing Boing [3], models came out at the end of the show wearing moving lights that orbited around them, representing the center of the universe. They certainly don't look like the most comfortable pieces of geek apparel to wear, but an interesting concept nonetheless. I'd rather see more light emitting diode dresses [4], which are somewhat fashionable and functional.
