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 Micro’be’, 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!
