Fashion designers Diana Eng (recently of Bravo’s “Project Runway”) and Emily Albinski first made headlines when their Inflatable Dress made the cover of ID Magazine last fall. In their first fashion show together, Diana and Emily are pleased to also launch their new collection under their brand “Blackbox Nation.” The duo strives to push forward technology in the fashion world.
Mashing up biological and technological concepts with fashion gives them a great edge in the fashion world. A fan’s slideshow of the event is here.
This dress is designed to incorporate a hacked vacuum cleaner to inflate the dress and give it volume. A sexy plastic cast corset with lots of switches embedded in it completed the look. Never has a vacuum cleaner looked so sexy!
