Hop dress: Fermented fashion

robe en houblon

When Bacteria, beer and a fermentation process come together to create a beautiful hop dress made of a new type of fabric. We enter the era of fermented fashion with beautiful illustrations below, and an explanatory video. 


The patterns of the skirt are reminiscent of hops, and the bustier is embellished with pearls to remind the bubbles of beer. It was designed by Donna Franklin and Gary Bass of the University of Western Australia. Gary Bass is currently in the process of commercializing the material, and by the end of 2018, its material can be sold to creators and businesses.

You see that dress? it’s fresh, sparkling and highlights women with its fitted bustier, and an exuberant puff of fabric for the skirt. It looks like this model is a designer model in vogue, but this dress has a special feature. It is not the result of he usual textile manufacturing processes. The fabric did not come from a high-end Parisian store. This dress comes from beer.
