Industrial-strength fashion

Fashion designer crafts gown out of Ford Focus parts

Auto designers spend a lot of time trying to achieve the classiness of haute couture. Now fashion designers are trying emulate them, incorporating car parts into a gown.

Two young British designers have created an elegant Edwardian dress and necklace with parts from a 2012 Ford Focus.

Scottish designer Judy Clark formed her frock with the help of two boxes full of components sent by Ford -- car keys, radio and dashboard components, seat covers and two red taillights. Clark said she wanted to create a dress that was both feminine yet involved industrial mechanics, Ford says.
