“Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” Part 2

This dress from the Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology was just enough to blow the mind! A floating dress, which is motorized, outfitted with wheels and decorated with remote-controlled winged crystals that can fly - that is what every girl wants. 

The detail in all of these designs is just oh so darn lovely!

I hope you try to visit this exhibit as you will really enjoy it. I would love to pop in again before it closes just to admire all this glorious fashion, art and design.
