A group of design students unveiled a very unique creation at this year's So Re Fa (Socially Responsible Fashion) show: Wearable Shelter is a hybrid of sorts that combines the use of clothing and shelter in one simple design.

Created for emergency situations and people who may find themselves without a place to day, the Wearable Shelter collection includes waterproof jackets and coats that easily turn into sleeping bags and two-person tents.

Implications - This product is a great option for consumers looking for functional and adaptable clothing. This appeals particularly to consumers that have been bombarded by news of all the many disasters that can befall them and to always put safety first. Businesses could benefit by creating products with dual uses and functions.
