At this week's Paris Fashion Show, Hussein Chalayan revealed six different Transformer Dresses. One of them converted from being a dress to being a naked woman with a hat, "The girl walked in and stood stock-still, dressed in a long, high-necked corseted Victorian gown. Then her clothes began to twitch, move, and reconfigure of their own accord. The mono-bosom top opened, the jacket retreated, the hemline started to rise, andâ€"finally, amazinglyâ€"there she was, wearing a crystal-beaded flapper dress: a woman propelled through fashion history from 1895 to the twenties in the space of a minute. This was one of six incredible feats of technology and conceptual commentary at the heart of Hussein Chalayan's show. The others also moved through decadesâ€"one from the hourglass Dior New Look to the Paco Rabanne metal-link shift." Stats for Transformer Dresses Trending: Older & Buzzing
