Dissolvable dress

Dissolvable dressScientists create the world’s first dissolvable dress -- the ultimate in disposable fashion.

The fabric is knitted from a clear polymer - polyvinyl alcohol - of the kind used in sachets that release detergent in washing machines. The dresses will dissolve and turn into a form that can be recycled as a bottle. However, they break down so slowly that they can survive a sweaty party.

During a forthcoming exhibition, up to eight dresses made from these textiles - minus their wearers - will be lowered into enormous goldfish bowls where they will be left to liquefy.
