Blog: The wearable chair

Joe Ayling | 8 August 2007

Gone are the days of the tightly-pulled corset it seems, this dress proves that pumps aren't restricted to tyres and footballs too.

In theory it could work as a party dress, as long as pointy heels play no part in the outfit. You can also sit down in a busy venue as it has an inflatable chair built in.

Designer JooYoun Paek also attached two foot pump slippers to the design, so comfort - something corsets definitely never had - is most definitely a priority.
