Stunning Color-Changing Dress Designs
Sun and water reactive fabric isn’t exactly a revolutionary technology—it captured the imaginations of consumers and designers alike back in the ‘80s and had a brief revival in hipster chic a la American Apparel t-shirts in 2008, but we’ve never really seen it done right. Until now, that is.
The ready-to-wear line of color-changing dresses and swimsuits from designer Amy “Rainbow” Winters elevates the technology from fashion gimmick to high-fashion concept. Winters’ uses color-changing technology to enhance her clean geometric prints, adding versatility and depth to her designs, rather than simply opting for the “neat” factor. Her 2011 collection of chic mini dresses, skirts and swimsuits could grace the pages of any fashion magazine and line the closets of countless fashionistas the world over.
It’s interesting to note that this bright young fashion technology visionary is an alumna of the same prestigious London design school as our favorite futuristic seamstress, Vega Wang. Must be something in the water, err, fabric, there…
