This is a science-art collaboration elucidating 10 key events in human embryonic development by artist/designer Helen Storey (London College of Fashion) and biologist Kate Storey (University of Dundee). Helen and Kate collaborated in 1997 to create a series of fashion/textile designs, spanning the first 1,000 hours of human life.
14 years on, Helen and Kate have collaborated again to produce new dresses, which explore the science behind the development and function of the lungs.
The full collection is 27 dresses, of which 10 are touring in 2011. A new website was launched to coincide with the 2011 tour.
