"LightCloth is an interactive cloth developed by the Japan Science and Technology Agency woven from optic fibers, whose every strand emits a different color of light. Using a special infrared light pen, the computer-controlled light patterns are displayed on the material, which could offer up infinite possibilities for fashion designers."

LightCloth is woven from diffusive optic fibers, with every strand emitting a different colored ray.

Fermented Fashion: A New Dress Made of Microbes from Wine. | elephant journal  {“Micro’be’ fermented fashion investigates the practical and cultural biosynthesis of clothing—to explore the possible forms and cultural implications of futuristic dress-making and textile technologies.    Instead of lifeless weaving machines producing the textile, living microbes will ferment a garment."}

Donna Franklin and Gary Cass, whose Micro'be' red wine dress is made by allowing microbes to ferment and "grow" into fabric that on the surface, has an aesthetic very similar to the meat dress famously worn by Lady Gaga.

Sustainability,Catalytic Clothing. Helen Storey & Tony Ryan have created a dress that purifies the air in effect to reduce air pollution. Catalytic clothing gains the energy it needs to work through light. It is also designed to breakdown pollutants straight away. To see a noticeable change in the reduction of pollution, a mass amount of people would have to wear the garments because it only removes a small part of the air borne pollutants.

Helen Storey designs and creates the pioneering catalytic dress Project works with incorporating catalytic technology into garments in the hope to campaign for clean air.
