The Life Dress

Belgian social design studio AnnaMariaCornelia is a think tank for how people interact with the world around them. Annamariacornelia’s projects combine humour and craftsmanship with new technologies in materials design.

One of her latest ideas is the ‘Life Dress’: the skirt that uses life vest technology to inflate into a sanctuary which shields the wearer in crowded spaces.

The Life Dress plays the lead in this South Korean TV-spot that shows the skirt in action.
