Korean artist Aamu Song's Reddress, a garment woven from 550 metres of blood-red wool that can be worn by 238 people at a time, was unveiled today, 22 September at York Hall, a leisure centre and boxing ring in east London, as part of the London Design Festival (until 25 September).

During the festival a performer will climb a concealed staircase to slip into the main body of the dress, while visitors will be invited to climb into the folds of the fabric, created by Danish textiles company Kvadrat.

Reddress was initially conceived as the backdrop to a musical performance in collaboration with Kvadrat and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark in 2005. Its unveiling at the London Design Festival marks the first time the work has been displayed in the UK capital.

Organised by the Finnish Institute in London, Reddress is due to be accompanied by evening performances by Finnish musicians Emma Salokoski and Jarmo Saari and the string quartet from Britten Sinfonia.
