Bella Hadid's dress makes the buzz
The process used to create a dress from a liquid product sprayed on the skin was created by Dr. Manel Torres, a Spanish designer and scientist. He created a system capable of liquefying fibers such as cotton, wool and nylon. Once the product is sprayed on the skin, the solvent contained in the substance evaporates and the fibers of the fabric reform. On contact with the skin, the product dries and hardens to become a textile material that can be worn.
