A dress has been made from over 550metres of fabric known as 'REDDRESS' which fits 238 people, created by Korean artist Aamu Song.

The art installation by the Helsinki-based creator is a crimson long-sleeved V-neck ball gown with hundreds of pockets of its folds which people can comfortable fit into.

Song used classic divina wool fabric to create the unique art piece which reaches 20 metres in diameter.

REDDRESS goes on display in East London's York Hall September 22 as part of the London Design Festival.

And with New York and London Fashion Week hot on the agenda, REDDRESS is hoped to attract numerous visitors.

For the exhibition the dress will be worn by a performer who will climb a concealed staircase to immerse into the three metre high centrepiece.

Audience members will then be able to join in by lying in big pockets under one of the four layers of skirt.

Song came up with the idea for the installation when he was trying to find a way of adding an extra dimension to a musical performance, reports the Mail Online.

Commenting on his creation Song said: "REDDRESS aims to question the roles we play as the participant or performer, as well as elevating the experiential boundaries of this versatile relationship."

The installation will be exhibited in York Hall, East London from September 22 until September 24th as part of the London Design Festival.
