Currys and PC world + Craig Lawrence
So here’s a rather literal fusion of fashion and technology!
Last month fashion designer Craig Lawrence unveiled the Sandstrøm Cable Knit Dress, a couture dress hand knitted using 500 metres of premium Sandstrøm gold series HDMI and complimented by a neck-piece fashioned from 30 of the cables’ gold-plated connections.
Photographer Alistair Guy was there for the unveiling at PC World’s megastore on Tottenham Court Road and took some quick mobile snaps for his blog, which by the way is a delicious account of his daily encounters with not only hottest events in the fashion diary, but also the best food, cars, art, shops, pets and the occasional “watch-off”. Fashion Popcorn is a particular fan of Alistair’s “tea of the week” posts.
Apparently the Sandstrøm Cable Knit Dress is on a tour of Curry and PC World stores around the country and will be showcased at the Gadget Show Live before being exhibited at London’s Fashion and Textile Museum. Find out more about the dress on the PC World and Currys facebook page.
