Climate Change Data Dress

When it comes to getting the message out about Climate change, we need to utilize all methods of communication. 

Why not wear science in a dress that not only looks modern and fabulous, but carries a powerful visual message? 

This print- is a graphical representation by Climate Central which shows the chain of warm months and how unusual it is. Each colored box represents every month from 1880-2015. The cool, blue months have been slowly disappearing, replaced by red boxes of continuous heat. 

This stylish look will be a great invitation to a meaningful conversation at your next conference or social gathering. 

Original graphic inspiration courtesy of Climate Central- Global temperature data is averaged and adjusted to early industrial baseline (1881-1910)  NASA GISS & NOAA NCEI

Amazing dress!

I love this dress so much! The fit is fantastic and it's a great conversation piece. My husband got the coordinating tie and we were the talk of the evening. Holly is absolutely wonderful to work with.

Another amazing dress

After buying my much-loved Rosalind Franklin dress, I decided I needed another science-themed dress and chose this one. Partly for the statement it makes about climate change and partly because it looks a lot like a heat map with gene expression profiling data I have generated in the lab. This is a wonderful, easy-to-wear dress that is suitable for multiple occasions and situations. I love the fact that it travels well so I can put it in my tiny carry on and it still looks immaculate when I put it on. Renee was also incredibly helpful with shipping, timing it so that it arrived at my hotel the day before an academic meeting (DNA damage - nothing to do with climate change, but this dress can still pull it off!).

Thank you so much for your review, Caroline! So happy it got to you on time! :-)

Brilliant dress

Brilliant dress, such a brilliant idea. Have worn it a few times already for my work as an energy and carbon manager. It always starts a conversation. The fit is great, just as described by the measurements. I love all the clothes designs on the website and just wish it was cheaper to import them in to the UK!

Beautiful, comfortable and a conversation starter

I wanted this dress as soon as I saw it (of course, there were a number of designs I wanted once I went to the Shenova site and saw them all). It was a perfect fit and I wore it out the day I received it - just to run errands but It's the kind of dress that goes from grocery store to dinner at a restaurant. The mythical day-to-evening dress! While I was waiting in line at the grocery store, a woman complimented me on the beautiful pattern. I explained it was climate change data and gave a synopsis of the info provided by Shenova. Everyone in line was instantly engaged and we all discussed the facts on everything from the sad and instant visual shock these stats provided to the idea that Holly was able to create such an appealing pattern from them. I had not expected this reaction! If this dress can inspire such a conversation in a single, brief encounter, imagine what it can do over the course of it's life in my wardrobe! Exciting to think that some minds might be changed and/or inspired by seeing this data displayed in such a simple, accessible way.
