Morphotex Fabric



I've had to come up with a new fashion innovation. I've designed my idea on the Morphotex fabric used to make this dress. It is desgined around the Morpho butterfly which has a metallic look that is gained by tiny fibers in its wings that refract light. I think its really interesting! I've made a dress collection out of this fabric with movement sensors so the fabric shimmers when your brush your hand over it and also moisture sensors which detect body sweat and either cools you down or warms you up. All these elements have been brought together from different 'smart fabrics'.
