Want to wear the latest Astronomy data #LikeABOSS?
This super-fashionably chic and professional turtleneck style sheath dress goes easily from day-to-(starry!) night, and is designed to look fabulous with your favorite blazer.
This print is of the largest-ever, three-dimensional map of distant galaxies done by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and its Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS).
Each dot in the print indicates the position of a galaxy 6 billion years into the past! The image covers about 1/20th of the sky, a slice of the Universe 6 billion light-years wide, 4.5 billion light-years high, and 500 million light-years thick.
“We have spent a decade collecting measurements of 1.2 million galaxies over one quarter of the sky to map out the structure of the Universe over a volume of 650 cubic billion light years. This map has allowed us to make the best measurements yet of the effects of dark energy in the expansion of the Universe." - sdss.org
I got the BOSS dress style with a custom print of the dark matter cosmic web by the Millennium Simulation, and it is GORGEOUS! The fit was wonderful, the colors beautiful. Holly was so wonderful to work with, and trust me, she'll make sure you get the right size. Thanks so much for making this dress a reality, Holly! Will DEFINITELY be buying more, and *absolutely recommend* Shenova to everyone!
I love all the Shenova patterns! I bought the LIGO Gravitational Waves dress a few months ago and I just bought the Dark Matter one. Holly is a gem to work with and is prompt and able to make any adjustments you desire. I will be a repeat customer many times!
I've been meaning to order a Shenova dress for ages. I was a bit worried about the fit but Holly was able to suggest a few options for adjustments that worked brilliantly. the dress is fantastic and fits well and is not my favourite dress to wear to conference dinners!
I already have the neuroscience skirt from the Shenova Etsy shop, which I love (so comfortable and looks good, great to wear). Even though I'm usually more of a brain geek, I saw this pattern and loved it. However, although I like the shape here I knew it wouldn't work on my figure (I have a large bust and look terrible in turtlenecks), so I asked Holly if she could make it in a different shape. She was so patient about explaining what shapes would and wouldn't work with the material, and sent me links to show an option with sleeves. I ended up with this pattern in the shape of the Mars Astronaut dress (the new one with sleeves, which I now want as well ;) ).
I'm a UK size 12-14 and the Large fits well (Holly was also very helpful with sizing advice after I sent my measurements; I don't like things too tight but this definitely isn't and even has a few wrinkles which looks fine!). I got a lot of compliments when I posted a selfie for the American friends who gave me a voucher for my birthday to get this, and more when I recently wore it to a work event . Like most of Holly's designs, it can be dressed up or down and works well as a pattern on its own, as well as an 'omg this is so cool' when you know what it is (I have already sent the link to this shop to a colleague after she saw me in this dress).
Fabulous dress. And AMAZING customer service. The team made a special order for me and it was exceptionally easy to get exactly what I wanted. Love it!!
Math + Fashion go quite well together! This mathematically fashionable dress is calculated to be fabulously figure flattering. The next number is found by adding up the two numbers before it. When we make squares with those widths, we get a nice spiral...It is that simple!

Celebrate the discovery of gravitational waves with this smart casual look. At first glance, you see plaid. Look a bit further and- surprise, you'll recognize the data from the LIGO detectors. It's a classic professional dress with an educational twist.
These plots show the signals of gravitational waves detected by the twin LIGO observatories at Livingston, Louisiana, and Hanford, Washington. The signals came from two merging black holes, each about 30 times the mass of our sun, lying 1.3 billion light-years away.
The top two plots show data received at Livingston and Hanford, along with the predicted shapes for the waveform. These predicted waveforms show what two merging black holes should look like according to the equations of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, along with the instrument's ever-present noise. Time is plotted on the X-axis and strain on the Y-axis. Strain represents the fractional amount by which distances are distorted.
As the plots reveal, the LIGO data very closely match Einstein's predictions.

Did A.I. just dream up the latest fashion?
This strikingly colorful dress could easily be mistaken as an abstract painting, but is in fact an "A.I. Brain Scan" created by the latest machine learning technology!
The print is the result of deep learning to speed up data analysis generated from the LIGO gravitational wave detector.
With imagery alike to the chaotic complexity of nature, one might start to question whether a computer could be an abstract artist.
