The owner of some of the UK’s top shopping centers, intu, has teamed up with wearable tech company Cute Circuit and the National Graphene Institute at the University of Manchester to produce the world’s most technically advanced little black dress. Made from the revolutionary material graphene, it is currently on display at intu Trafford Centre in Manchester.

The designers hope that in the future the same technology will be used for a high-tech garment that can be programmed to showcase any color or design, changing whenever the wearer desires something a little different.
