  • Inflatable dress

    While a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, Diana Eng and classmate Emily Albinski created a gown--fitted with a hacked hand vacuum and a series of valves--that inflates and deflates according to the desired silhouette.

  • Heart-rate hoodie

    One of Eng's tech-influenced designs: a hoodie embedded with a wireless heart monitor attached to a digital camera. The camera snaps pictures as a wearer's heart rate increases, acting as a sort of "involuntary blog" to capture images of daily life.
