In the UK, the designers showed a dress of graphene

Graphene — the material, representing a two-dimensional modification of carbon with a thickness of only 1 atom, was received over 10 years ago in 2004 Adam Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, for which they even won the Nobel prize. Since then, the unusual material used in various technical fields. But on the application of graphene in the fashion industry before us did not have to hear, as reported by the Guardian, the company Cute Circuit launched the first such a dress recently in the English city of Manchester.

Immediately it is worth to mention and to mention that the dress consists of graphene is not entirely. It is used to supply energy to LEDs and celebrate the heartbeat of man, the basis of the same dresses used by the most ordinary fabric. Despite this, the first graphene dress — it was just, you might say, a prototype. And designers would want to create clothes that can change color depending on the preferences of the owner. In addition, graphene inserts in clothing can be used to demonstrate emotional state and even as a kind of indicators of various diseases. In General, designers have a lot of ideas on this subject. As noted creative Director of Cute Circuit, Francesca Rosella and researcher at the National Institute of graphene research Floor wiper

"Graphene has never been used in the fashion industry. Honored to be the first. It's great to create stunning dresses that will demonstrate the amazing properties of graphene. We are only beginning to understand the real applications of graphene, demonstration of its properties at a fashion show is a very exciting».
