Aussie scientists have made a dress out of beer. The dress material was formed using bacterial fermentation of beer. The strapless white number has a skirt shaped like hops and a beaded bodice to represent bubbles.
The designers, Donna Franklin and Gary Cass from the University of Western Australia were curious to use advanced evolutions of microbial cellulose technology to make the material used to create the dress.
This is not the first time they have successfully created clothing out of alcohol.
The Micro’be’ Wine Dress was created using a fermented bottle of wine. It apparently doesn’t have an appealing smell, but it’s environmentally friendly and in essence formed itself.
The material of the Beer dress is explained further on their website “this new and improved material is very delicate, pure white and inscribed with random biological etchings. The Beer Dress design is the essence of summer, as frothy layers of material tumble down in clouds of white looking cool and chic.”
The Beer Dress will be headed to the fashion capital of the world, Milan to be featured at the 2015 World Expo.
