This Dress Is Held Together with Magnets

Jolan Van Der Wiel and Iris van Herpen created a line of clothing that is shaped by magnetic forces:

"I was interested in making invisible forces visible," Van Der Wiel tells Co.Design about his attraction to magnets.

To make the dresses, the designers added a mixture of iron fillings and resin to fabric, then used magnets to pull the substance into a strange texture of spikes and filaments. It took three weeks for each garment to grow.
