New Fashion From The Wine Cellar

A scientific technician at the University of Western Australia’s Institute of Agriculture has developed a new way to make seamless dresses by using the by-product of wine fermentations that went wrong. The project, called Microbe, is using the cellulose produced by bacteria that turned the wine into vinegar and is considered a provocative art project. Unfortunately, not only do these garments need to be constantly humidified to retain their supple properties, but they also generate a certain smell, which can produce the impression that the wearer has spent the previous night on the booze!
