Designers create dress from upcycled carbon fibre fabrics

Taking inspiration from the BMW I3 and the BMW I8, two fashion designers have launched an interesting collection, which includes a dress, made using exclusively up cycled and sustainable fabrics made out of carbon fibre. BMW together with twins, Daniela and Annette Felder, of London-based design company Felder Felder, joined forces to bring out this collection that claims to be sustainable.

According to a post on BMW Blog, ‘Carbon Dress’, the main piece of the collection, inspired by the BMW I, has been created using carbon fibres from BMW’s electric vehicle program.

Carbon material makes up 97 per cent of the metallic grey skater dress, while the unique texture and shine of the material provides a futuristic finish, which remains lightweight and strong.

The fully sustainable material was created at the same plant that produces carbon fibre for BMW and this is the second time, the designers have collaborated with BMW I to create a sustainable and green collection.
