This was added to fabric and then pulled by magnets to create the unusual and spiky texture. Each of the dresses took three weeks to “grow” using magnetic forces.

The patterned dresses were shown as part of Iris van Herpen’s Autumn Winter 2013 fashion show in Paris earlier this month. Click through to see pictures of the magnetic dresses:
