The Lenticular dress was created by Dutch designer Antoine Peters. It is inspired by the process of lenticular printing. By incorporating the print into small pleats, the visual perspective changes from polka dots at one vantage point and stripes at another. Designed for the Te[ch]x(t)iles project from MOTI, the Lenticular Dress offers an optical illusion. In black and white, the pattern changes between stripes and polka dots.
Utilizing Lenticular illusion in fashion showcases how easily a mind-altered effect can be incorporated. Typically seen in pictures, and now fashion, this is an effect that can be utilized to create space-changing imagery.
