Ying Gao is a talented fashion creator that experiments with using technology to enhance the fashion-wearing experience and her recent collection of couture garments include two dresses entitled 'Can't' and 'Won't' that are able to detect and decode the wearer's emotion. In understanding the emotion of the wearer, the garments react and transform in state to present a liveable wearable that responds to the individual consumer.

The dresses are comprised of organza, PVDF, cotton mesh and tech devices that are able to read and understand the emotions of the wearer. If the dresses sense an emotional response from the wearer through its tech composition, the garment freezes. The relationship between the wearer and the clothing is thus heightened, as the consumer directly effects the appearance and state of the garment.
