Interactive Clothing: the Date Dress

The clothing you wear is a powerful signal.  Clothing choice projects an image of the kind of person you are, and it helps define your intentions.

Nowhere are the effects and importance of clothing style more pronounced than in the game of romance.  Women use the style, cut, material of fashion to display motives, and to elicit responses.

Clothing is usually static, always one thing and unchanging.  This project aims to create ‘interactive clothing’- clothing that is dynamic; clothing that can change to signal and respond to its environment.

THE DATE DRESS contains a built in lever system that allows you to subtly adjust the style from proper (high neckline/long length) to scandalous (low neckline/short length).
