@Susan: Then there will be power running down your body. What happens if it rains suddenly ? Then it should be water proof with no electrical shortage due to water

I Think the green one with a black touch is a good combination of colors even though the design seems to be traditional

Hailey, 

What a nice idea! :D I need to talk to her about this. I would love to have a dress with some technology attached onto it. The ability to cool down in summer, or warm you up in winter would be perfect.

Cool ideas... This one is in US Military green which is close.  Transformable too:

@Susan, Camo could be totally fun...and maybe at some point she'll integrate a pedometor or some other electronic nicety into one of her designs and then we can write about it. :)

Hailey, 

Indeed, both the reversible and transformable dresses collections are fun and practical. The designer thought about them as sustainable and practical solutions for women in today's agile world, who sometimes lack time, but want to be at their best in both work and social environments. 

Both collections let you have two dresses in one. The reversible dresses feature two colors, and also slightly different design. You can wear blue for work, after work go to the bathroom and reverse your dress to be the lady in red at the after-work party. :D 

The transformable collection transforms through little buttons from maxi to mini, from pencil to wide, from long sleeves to short sleeves. I have two of these and I love them.

She uses only good quality fabrics that don't need to be ironed. This is thinking of the business woman who needs to pack her dresses and get to a meeting as soon as she arrives to her destination. And it's true, the dresses look perfect right after coming out from the suitcase. They are easy to wear and super comfortable. They also adapt to your body in case of weight change. When she was pregnant I saw her wearing one of these dresses, one she had worn before the pregnancy. 

I think she could use these camouflaged fabrics in her desugns.

@Susan, as usual other parts of the world are ahead of us in fashion. Those reversable dresses sound fun and practical.

Hailey, 

" ... the really great designs, have often been copied from nature ... " 

Exactly. Even airplanes are designs copied from nature. There is a great potential behind this, if use wisely, and for good causes. I just don't like that every first thought is connected with a military application. :/

Prabhakar, 

I like it. :) It would be sustainable fashion. Like the already existing transformable and reversible dresses (there is a Fiinnish designer doing this, very successful, I have two of these dresses) clothes that adapt to light would be great.

Following your idea, there could be a dress that is appropriate for the office and then adjusting to the evening light it's perfect to an after-work party. :D Yay! No need to go and change, no need to have two separate dresses, it's sustainable and nice.

You had a nice, positive application for this fabric. :)  

-Susan
