Robin Lasser, a professor of Art at San Jose State University, has created dress tents by merging fashion and tents. The design is a combination between fashion, function and arty fantasy.

Implications - The goal for Robin Lasser was to create a "fashion of place," where the outdoors meets the world of fashion. The tents can also be worn, but were designed to be set up in galleries or museums as interactive installments. Each tent is different and represents a specific place and culture. They also have names such as the "housewife Picnic Dress Tent." Robin Lasser designed the artworks to have meaning that represents culture, women and places of the world.
