Dress Will Stop Colds; Fight Air Pollution


Posted May 8, 2007 - By Yodapollo

If you could help the environment by buying clothes would you? Well, that may be a possibility.

Cornell University design student, Olivia Ong, has made her frist splash in the fashion world, and it's a doozy. Her new designs, debuted this week at Cornell's Design League fashion show, include a get-up that "destroys harmful gases and protects the wearer from smog and air pollution." Another design protects the wearer from cold and flu germs, as well as not needing to ever be washed. I think it may also get you a +4D6 defense roll against projectile weapons.

The fabrics are capable of these amazing feats due to the cotton materials used being treated with nanoparticles. No word yet on when giant smoke monsters capable of defending nearly-impossible to locate pacific islands will be available. As cool as this nano-treated cotton is, at $10,000 per square yard, it's at least refreshing to know that the super-rich won't have to worry about getting sick ever again.
