This is different and extremely creative.
Co-founder of From Somwhere, Orsola de Castro and University College Falmouth graduate, Rebecca Jayne Taylor recently created a floor-length gown made completely out of Speedos.
The couture creation is made out of leftover fabric from Team USA, GB, Australia, Germany, Spain, Japan, Canada, Netherlands, and Israel's Fastskin Super Elite Swimsuit and it's surprisingly fabulous.
de Castro explained their design inspiration, saying:
"We wanted to really concentrate on the idea of having a traditional evening gown that mimics sportswear design techniques. The sewing, finishes, and details were constructed as if the dress would also have to withstand swimming, which presented an exciting challenge."
The designers focused on highlighting women's hips and bust lines to make the dress form-fitting and we're loving the fact that the gown can be used for multiple purposes.
