Have you ever thought about bubble clothes being the next fashion tendency? What if I Lobo You told you that Central Saint Martins fashion student Fredrik Tjaerandsen just presented a fashion exhibition with this outstanding and out of the box concept. A collection with shape-shifting balloons, named ‘Moments of Clarity’, shown at the college’s annual BA Fashion Show this past Friday.
From dresses to skirts, this inflated fashion exhibition counted with models were large blown-up spheres that covered their bodies while walking on the fashion show‘s runway. The process was simple, the dresses were inflated through a valve that controls the air-flow of the modern design piece.
This collection counts with eight looks in total, each crazier and more awesome than the others. During the fashion exhibition, several pieces self-deflated and turned into skirts and dresses, isn’t this extremely amazing?
‘The ‘bubble’ I have designed with the shape of a torus‘, the designer explained. ‘the inner part of the torus is where the garment is constructed and inverts out to the bubble.’

All the outfits were made from natural rubber that tjaerandsen sourced from Sri Lanka suppliers that support and buy the material from local growers. Tjærandsen won the L’oréal professional young talent award for the collection, which he says is inspired by human self-awareness.
Tjaerandsen inflated each dress before the fashion exhibition, filling the structures with around two to three thousand liters of oxygen. while the smaller bubbles took 10 minutes, the biggest bubble took about 1 hour.
