Well... I'm not sure what to make of this dress... apparently it's fashioned out of 196 packages of ramen noodles. I don't imagine it would be too comfortable but I must say the model certainly wears it well.

"Karina from Virginia sent me some pictures of her art project. The project was called “Wearable Art”, and Karina made a dress out of ramen packets. It took 196 packets of ramen, and some chop-sticks to construct! No word on what grade Karina received, but it looks like “A” work to me. I figure that a 10 cents per packet, and some free chopsticks with take-out chinese, you could make this dress for about $20. That's not counting the “worth” you get from eating all the ramen."

Implications - The fashion industry is based solely on remaining avant-garde, causing designers to look towards new and inventive materials as well as innovative designs.
