Image: Chris Wolston Giving a playful touch to traditional furniture, Brooklyn-based designer Chris Wolston has created exquisite human-shaped chairs for lounging.

In the late 70’s and the 80’s, it was almost a common site in any Rock or Blues concert to see the lead singer or the groups perform in body suits that glowed with little light bulbs. The electrifying concerts died out very soon and were completely out of vogue & forgotten until recently when another celebrity appeared wearing a glowing dress in London. Pussycat Dolls’ famous singer Nicole Scherzinger just electrified the night by walking on the red carpet wearing an elegant black French chiffon gown made by CuteCircuit, on the launch of Britain’s 4th generation of mobile network…

Just swivel the heel and the tiny little secret compartment is revealed. With the way woman’s fashion and the height of heels is headed these days, you bet one can carry a lot more in the heel of a shoe. And that is precisely what the crazily creative folk at Bellona Fashions have come up with. The Double Agent shoe may not make you one of…

These high heeled shoes surely do look as if they are made for some sci-fi movie but they are not. Designed by Janina Alleyne, UK fashion footwear designer, these pair of high heels are called as the Exoskeleton shoes. Created using 3D printing technology in two pieces, upper and lower, the shoes were then later on joined together to form one piece of eye popping style that looks more like some alienated footwear that is made from exotic animal skeletal. There are teeth like Skelton structures on the toe and on the upper part there are exotic spikes to compliment…

Victorian dress always has that retro charm associated to it and if the same dress can create a magic halo around the wearer depending on their mood or feeling then it is rather unbelievable.

Kinetic Dress is made from elastic textile entrenched with sensors at important points to gauge the body’s vital readings.

Being out on a beach party, I often forget to carry an ice box or a small freezer as a result being forced to have lukewarm beer to spoil the mood.
