The dress straps, the final part of the veil and the skirt edges are enhanced by a particular plumber's tape teflon handmade that create a fray effect. This enhancement can be considered as an innovative fur that not only is it made using a new material but it is also animal friendly. The removibile veil is placed on waist level and has 4 variations of use: on the face, hooked on the shoulders or back into life, or dropped creating a train.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Cocodd is always the perfect outfit thanks to the numerous possibilities of variation. This allow the bride to choose the appropriate combination for any time of the day. It is unique and studied in detail, created with an innovative material (Teflon plumber's tape) worked hand-crochet, and a fabric (scuba / neoprene) from many properties. Cocodd will not be stored into the closet, because the shaped dress below the knees is an elegant solution to wear even after the wedding day.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research objective is to introduce as yarn an unconventional material. An innovation that makes you stand out from other brands. Ambra Castello want to give benefits to her customers, offering a fabric with several qualities. It is suitable for the twenty-first century, because practical. Indeed, doesn't need to be iron, and is also beneficial for the ambient, because clothes can be reused to create new ones.

CHALLENGE:
The research challenge was to crochet the dress using a material that has never been used to create clothing, such as plumber's tape teflon. In addition, the fringes created with the same material were made by hand. A process that takes time and patience to find the right working technique.
