Cool concept


by placing colored felt-tip pens in the pockets of the dress its appearance changes over time.
within an hour - to one and a half hours the colored ink bleeds into the fabric and creates a one-off design for each occasion. the owner can then clean the dress and color it in a different way for each time they wear it.

Nice, very cool...and subversive, we're always being reminded not to wear pens on our pockets...
It's also surrealist, you let the acident, became art

I agree. The subversiveness of it is where the concept's charm lies. You let the accident become art... well seen, dear J!
