Hussein Chalayan's Spring Summer 2016 show featuring dissolving outfits

Designer Hussein Chalayan’s Paris Fashion Week show featured a catwalk shower that dissolved a pair of soluble outfits, revealing delicate garments underneath.

The presentation of melting clothes was part of the Chalayan Spring Summer 2016 show, which took place in the Salle Melpomène at Paris’ Palais des Beaux-Arts earlier today.
