It's a dress made from balloons -- 200 of them, to be exact.


The latest in dresses from one Japanese designer Rie Hosokai is feather-light, see-through and comes with an unusual warning: watch out for needles, Reuters reports.

It's a dress made from balloons. All the work is done by hand, and Hosokai said it can be hard to account for the amount of air when adjusting the size and volume of the dress.

Most of Hosokai's dresses carry price tags ranging from 150,000 to 300,000 yen, but she sold one set of balloon dress, headpiece and bouquet for 1 million yen.

Each dress lasts only 24 hours at most before it starts to deflate, and some can change color depending on the temperature and humidity. (点击路透社网站查看原文)
