Ignoring the catcalls for a wireless version, this sparkling -if rather tangled- outfit that debuted during the recent Austin Fashion Week has caught the eye of enthusiastic tech bloggers everywhere.
The creation of local designer Tina Sparkles, who made the dress for a recycled fashion show, this skirt sports bright colors and a worrying mess at the hemline.
While we give props for the creativity involved (not to mention the labor), the aforementioned mess at the bottom does bode ill for accident prone wearers. That is, if computer wire-couture reaches a store near you any time soon.
Imagine if you wore this for a party and all sorts of garbage gets stuck at the bottom, from discarded bottles to cigarette butts. That’s yucky.
Ribbing aside, at least we now have a clear idea of what to wear in that post-apocalyptic future we fantasize about.
Rather than make do with rags or resort to spandex (!), we can sew our own customized outfits from computer wires. If we can’t manage a needle and thread however, we can always drop by Tina Sparkles’ place.
