Would You Watch Your Wedding Dress Disappear?
Most women would never dream of throwing away their wedding dress. Brides search for weeks, sometimes even months, to find that perfect white gown, and end up spending hundreds, even thousands of dollars on an item they’ll wear for just one day (then store in their closets for years to come). But now with the push for more environmentally friendly options, the notion of keepsake fashion is changing. Students studying fashion and engineering at Sheffield Hallam University created a wedding dress that’s the ultimate in eco-friendly. After the big day, simply add water and the white gown dissolves, leaving zero trace of its existence. While most would gasp in horror at watching their wedding dress disappear, this is actually an interesting move towards sustainability for our environment and the need to create (and use) green fashions. Since the dress is made of polyvinyl alcohol, it will simply disintegrate into nothingness and space in landfills, not to mention your closet. [Telegraph]
