Dissolving Clothes Are In


I researched soluble clothes a year ago to see if it would make a plausible premise for a story. All I could find was soluble stitching, which most people use in embroidery rather than to spring nude surprises on people.

So I’m very glad to see that real soluble fabric appears to be a reality, as seen in this video from Amsterdam Fashion Week. Once I find out a bit more I shall see if I can come up with an interesting story idea, but for now just enjoy the video:

And if you want the artsy view of it:

The clothes were destroyed and often completely disappeared. The transience of fashion – captured in a show. The poetic statement combined innovation, performance and fashion into a well balanced whole.

  1. That would be a great story about a boy teased and bullied for taking home ec. classes. For revenge he develops a new style that is all the rage of his small town. Then he hosts a town party to celebrate his success.

    • Mmm – an unwary catwalk of women in dissolving clothes. Although I’m not fond of revenge stories (even if someone deserves it)… I’m thinking maybe the shy new girl gets a discount dress from the fashion outlet, and then when she gets to the garden party it starts to rain.
