Brighton student drinks smart with sachet dress shown at London Fashion Week

A former Brighton student made a dress out of drinks sachets and had it shown off at London Fashion Week.

Brad Dykes, who did his Masters in fashion with business at the University of Brighton, teamed up with drinks company Drink Me to create a dress composed of 500 latte packets sewn onto a skin coloured mesh structure.

He said: “Each sachet was individually hand-sewn onto the dress and it took a week to complete.

“The focus of the dress is movement and colour with the design appearing as though it was painted onto the model.”

He has previously made garments for pop stars including Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake as well as producing clothes for television shows.

Brad spent time interning in LA and has now launched his own brand of dancewear called Studio Armell.

Drink Me commissioned the dress to celebrate its tenth anniversary.

Amanda Hamilton, from Drink Me, said: “The collaboration with Studio Armell and ourselves seemed to fit really well. “As well as supporting an emerging design company, we wanted to create a dress that showcased our modern vibe and use of colours, which is reflected in our eye-catching packaging designs.”
