Dezeen Screen: beware of getting excited or embarrassed when wearing one of these dresses, as an increased heart rate will cause it to become transparent.

Created by Dutch designers Studio Roosegaarde and Anouk Wipprecht, the clothing is made from leather and electrically-sensitive foils that become opaque or transparent according to alterations in voltage.

    maybe this is what I was actually wearing when I'd have those dreams where I'd turn up to the school playground naked.

    It seems to be the trend around here to portray women only when half-naked bodies or jewelry mannequins are needed. Sad.

      please see Zaha Hadid, Amanda Levete, Benedetta Tagliabue, Farshid Moussavi, Elizabeth Diller.. you get the idea… women are plenty important – its comments like the one above that play up a false reality.

    Here's a tip: if you have clothes that become transparent when experiencing embarrassment, *don't* use professional models to display it :3

    nice idea, but it looks like a costume, not an outfit.

    Zee +1.

    Eugene: You clearly missed the point. This is the second time in 2 weeks that I log on to dezeen and see top-less women. *eyeroll*

    The shoulder swirly things are a bit much, but besides that I think the design is actually pretty cool and kind of kinky.
