See-through clothing is any garment made with lace, mesh or sheer material that allows the wearer’s body or underwear-if any-to be seen clearly through its fabric.
Before the 1980s, this type of clothing was still a taboo, even in the most popular celebrity and fashion forums. The trend changed in the late 80s as a result of the powerful influence of top-rated television soap operas like Dallas and Dynasty. In the 1990s knickers and bras became extremely brief, almost non-existent. Finally, although still seen as controversial, see-through materials have been featured heavily in catwalk fashion collections since 2006.
In this set I explored the potential of a transparent black dress to reveal and conceal at the same time. The fabric stretched and gathered across my body in tight, but sheer, folds and, although I felt dressed, under the lights I knew my naked breasts and nipples were always on show and that my straightened red hair shone brightly.
The effect of the thong was even better than I anticipated, it was hardly there and was more teasing when seen through the dress than if I had been naked.I felt the sheer material clinging to my legs and, with the high-heels, it only made them appear longer and more elegant than ever.
