French Designer Creates 14 Looks Using One Dress

For his Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2012/2013 fashion show, French fashion designer Franck Sorbier merged fashion and technology to retell a dark 17th century French fairytale, Donkeyskin.

His avant-garde presentation featured two models—one in a white and voluminous ball gown (as a princess) and another draped in black sculptural dress and headdress (as a sorceress)—and the high-tech future of fashion to ‘transform’ the white gown.

In the story, a king is determined to marry his own daughter to fulfil the last wishes of his wife.

Using projections, images were beamed onto the ‘princess’s’ dress, each dress telling a story in itself—of the princess’s desire to flee, when she sought a fairy godmother, when she set out to find dresses the color of the sky and as bright as the sun, and her happy ending when she falls in love with a prince.

Is this the future of haute couture?
