When inflated, the Evacuation Skirt can hold a full-grown adult woman and allows users to float atop floods and lakes when needed, becoming a suit life saver in emergency situations.

Designer Yael Mer, says he "wanted to raise the question of emergency and beauty and to explore whether they can meet each other."
