Designers Thomas Vailly and Laura Lynn's 'Fast Fashion Line' reduces the sprawl that usually takes up an entire factory into a system that produces dresses in just a couple of square feet. The production line is complete with a station for cutting, storage, production and display. This is the duo's approach to "industrial production on a smaller, more human scale."

At the production stage, fabric is fitted over a human-sized balloon and dotted with drops of glue. When removed from the form, the garment puckers and creates a unique texture or drapery on the dresses.

The individual garments only take about 20 minutes to produce, whereas typical factory-produced garments can take up to 12 hours. The system is an amazing way to rapidly produce one-of-a-kind dresses without a lot of space, labor or energy.
