Refinity dresses consist of interlocking parts which can be added or taken away from a garment, allowing users to alter it's design on demand.

As “DIY” and “Green” seem to be the two loudest buzz words in marketing and apparel today, it makes sense that eventually someone would come along to merge the two. Stepping up to the challenge is Dutch design duo Fioen Van Balgooi and Berber Soepboer, whose line of “click/fold” dresses called Refinity are literally redefining making a dress “ones own”. Each outfit consists of interlocking parts (much like LEGO) which can be added or taken away from a garment- allowing you to alter it’s design on demand. In addition to providing endless tailoring opportunities, the garments are also earth friendly- making use of “cradle-to-cradle” technology  and  zero waste design. And if this hasn’t already sold you on Refinity, apparently the clothes are also able to hold up to the wear-and-toss mentality of the average consumer.
