Last night, one of the most innovative fashion shows took place at Central Saint Martins college. The school puts on an annual BA Fashion show and last night, grad student, Fredrik Tjaerandsen was able to make balloons walk down the runway. In a shock to spectators, the balloons actually turned into garments!
In an interview with Love Magazine, the design student revealed how the inflatable balloon garments work. “I have constructed these pieces with an air pressure system that lets the wearer control the air-flow,” he said. “Whenever the wearer wants to deflate it, they open a latch inside to release the inverted bubble part and then that dives out of the deflating bubble.”
The garments painted the runway in a multitude of different colors! At the end of the night Tjaerandsen received the L’Oréal Young Talent Award.
