Fashion designers are continuing to explore garments printed with color changing inks. The latest is Rainbow Winters Spring Summer Collection 2011 featuring garments that are printed with special thermochromic and hydrochromic ink, which change color when exposed to sunlight or water.
“The signature piece of her collection is the Rainforest Dress – a dress that changes colour when exposed to water and/or sun. Sunlight activated flowers on the dress turn purple, when activated though water, the whole dress, the bodice and flowers transform into full colour. Her Petal Dress changes the color when exposed to sun, indoors it is green or pink, outdoors it begins to turn blue or purple.”
