The result of the joint efforts of Designer Prof Helen Storey and renowned Chemistry Prof Tony Ryan is the world's first dissolvable dress!!

Though guys might have a huge smile on their faces, while reading this, the researchers meant it as a slap on the face of our carefree attitudes!

This is an attempt to make plastic little milder for the environment. The Professors also collaborated with Sheffield Polymer Centre so as to create these dissolvable textiles made from clear polymer and polyvinyl alcohol.

In an upcoming event around eight such dresses will be lowered into large goldfish bowls where they will breakdown to form something that can be transformed into bottles.
