Fashion as art: Marga Weimans makes a dress from mobile phones

Blurring the line between runway and performance art was Marga Weimans’s spring / summer 2013 show at Amsterdam fashion week (AIFW). The materials, colours and shapes in the collection reflected her main inspiration – architecture.

Weimans’ particularly unusual closing number – the showstopper of the set – was the “Vodaphone dress” made of 300 mobile phones. Dial in, and it changes colour.
