What does a metal document tube dress look like?

TalkSport | 01 September 2017 The metal tube dress has been a favourite of fashion designers since the 1980s, but it has also gained popularity among fashion fans since the mid-1990s, and now it has its own style guide, thanks to the help of fashion icon Vivienne Westwood. 

The dress, which is worn in the UK by designers like Anna Wintour and Emma Watson, features an elastic waistband, fitted bodice, and two straps that run along the back of the neck. 

As well as being a stylish way to show off your body, it also has an important purpose, as it can hold your documents, passport, or driver’s license. 

“The idea is to have your documents out of sight and out of mind and, therefore, easier to carry, and also easy to show on the day when you’re travelling,” Vivienne Westwoods, fashion designer in her new book The Fashion of the New York Times, told ABC News. 

This photo from Vivienne’s book is one of the best examples. 

In the original Velvet Magazine, Westwood wore the dress with the following message: “My body is my dress and I wear it on the way to the office or to the gym.

But also to my kids.

I wear a dress to the movies, to the pool, to dinner.” 

The elastic waistbands, designed to make the dress more flexible, are fitted with adjustable straps and are a favourite for wearing in public. 

To get the dress on, the wearer needs to bend over and hold the elastic waist bands in place with a thin rubber band, then take it off. 

Viola Davis, a fashion designer at VivienneWestwood, explains how the dress works.

 “A lot of the people that are wearing it have been doing it for a long time, so they know it,” Westwood told ABC.

“They’ve got these elastic bands that are flexible, so the waistband’s just a very simple, very flexible band that’s going to fit.”

Westwood says that the elastic band on the dress is also very easy to get onto, and that the dress can be worn with jeans, or trousers. 

On the runway, Westwoods also has a line of dresses, which are made from fabric from a plastic bottle. 

A dress that was originally meant for the fashion world, but has been a hit in the fashion world, and is now used by designers. 

When wearing the skirt, the designer added a zipper at the back, which also allows for easier movement. 

Westwood told Vogue that it is a bit difficult to find a dress that is comfortable to wear on the runway with this style, but she is hoping to introduce more styles in the future. 

She added that the dress has a lot of potential, but more time is needed to perfect it before it becomes a fashionable style.

“The dress is very, very versatile, and it has the potential to be a fantastic style for the future,” Westwoods said. 

It is one of the few dress styles that are available in both men’s and women’s sizes.

But the dress has also been worn around the world by the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, British Prime Minister David Cameron, British Queen Elizabeth II, British Olympian Emma Watson and Lady Gaga. 

So what is the dress made of? 

It has a high-end design, made from a polypropylene plastic that is 100% polyester. 

Its waistband is made of a silicone-based material that is flexible and stretchy. 

What are the benefits of wearing the metal document dress? 

“If you wear it, it’s really, really easy to keep the documents, so you don’t need to think about them and the plastic is not a pain in the neck,” Westwick told ABC in a 2016 interview. 

That’s why many designers have used the plastic document dress as a reference for their designs.
