A shameless cross-post from a topic I started at the Lablit forum.
This wonderful dress is part of an exhibit at the Ontario Science Centre, entitled The Beauty of Stem Cells – Fashion Inspired by Stem Cell Research. Unfortunately, I completely failed to photograph much else of it (or to be accurate, took a few other photos that can be charitably described as “crap”), but there were several other unusual pieces of clothing, and a series of rather nice photomicrographs by Craig Aarts and Radha Chaddah of the Stem Cell Network.
I also completely neglected to record who designed this elegant gown, but it was one of the following students of the fashion program at Toronto’s RCC Institute of Technology.
Muhammad Alamgir / Gulmairam Amankogoeva / Hilary Birkenshaw / Elissa Contino / Liliane Fotso / Julie Hodge / Lena Meier / Sveta Shvedenkova
I’m going to have to get back to this, I think, especially since there are many other educational and public engagement activities and exhibits along with it. There’s plenty more information at the Stem Cell Network itself, or the relevant page at the Science Centre. For those in the area, it’s on until October the first, 2011.
