A Cornell-educated artist and sculptor has come up with a highly bizarre, but probably very effective, 'personal space' creating dress.

The ruffled pink and white creation doesn't spring out suddenly in the fashion of an umbrella, as it looks like it might, but rather senses a looming presence, and slowly expands outwards.

“因此我开始寻求一些方法,可以让女性在公共场合保持一定的私人空间。”

Ms McDermott built the dress herself and used 'proximity sensors' to identify when a lurker gets too close for comfort, and plastic scaffolding within the garment to enable the hemline to expand.
