Artists Adrienne Pao and Robin Lasser have created tent dresses or 'wearable architecture' for the outdoors.
Each is intended for a specific scenario with the dirty towel dress tent, for example, suitable for the beach. Other models – among a bewildering array – include the greenhouse dress tent for when the garden gets a bit blustery and the cross-dress tent, which is ideal for Mardi Gras.
Unfortunately for fashionistas or ramblers, the super-sized dresses – made of anything from steel to mosquito netting – are not for sale.
This is probably just as well as the California artists say each dress tent is meant to be a whimsical portrayal of its setting.
They say the work is about seduction, 'a fusion of architecture, the body and the land', that 'poses the question of what lies under a woman's skirt in the 21st century'.
