Red wine dress made from innovative fabric that looks lickable

As tempting as tasting red wine with a beautiful lady might seem it is even better if you could just drape her wine dress and then later on as the mood sets, lick it all off! Things like these could be just possible with the new revolutionary red wine fabric that can be easily designed into dresses of the new age. Developed by a team from University of Western Australia it is still in infancy stage of development but the combination of art and scientific knowledge lends this project its own space.

The red wine fabric is produced by inculcating acetobacter bacteria which is converted into vinegar and when the thick layer is produced on the layer of wine it is collected and harvested, later on it is put an inflatable mannequin for achieving any desired shape. According to lead researcher Gary Cass the ultimate goal of the project is to develop a fabric that takes any shape and can be molded into garments without any single stitch.

At this point in time the only problem with the fabric is that once it loses moisture it becomes fragile and tears easily, which by the way could be a problem in cold winter days however in summers it might not bother that much. Next step for this project is to come up with the solution to this problem which I’m sure will be achieved.
