One raft of a dress

Just what you need this coming summer: a dress that doubles as a floatie

An Australian designer has combined fashion and function - for the sea.

Jacqueline Bradley, a Canberra-based artist, created the classic 1950s-style cream and floral 'Boat Dress' that actually floats on water.

It's not the first time she given a fashion piece a wacky slant. Bradley has made goggles made from water glasses and a jacket using material from a kite.

Bradley uses her sculptural designs to '[explore] ways of engaging with the surround environment, ideas of home and a sense of place' in the form of sculptures, installations and costumes, made from building materials, household objects, fabric and wallpaper.
