Here at Dressed, we don't often tackle the topic of emergency readiness and supply stockpiling — but I'm going to make an exception today. Australian artist Jacqueline Brady has created one of the most fashionable life-saving garments (devices?) I've ever laid eyes on.

BEHOLD: The Raft-Boat-Dress

This 1950s-inspired rosette-printed fit-and-flare sleeveless dress has an amazing feature built in that makes it totally unique — it inflates into a life raft!

Bradley, who specializes in sculptural pieces that explore "ways of engaging with the surrounding ideas of home and a sense of place," exhibited the boat-dress at this month's Futuro Textiles show in Lille, France.

No word yet on when and where this dress can be bought — or whether it will even be put into production! But it's definitely the chic-est life raft I've ever seen!

If the raft-dress came to market and wasn't crazy expensive, would you consider buying it? What would you use it for? I can see so many uses for it. On top of its life-saving potential, it would be really great for camping trips by a lake, a lazy afternoon on the river, or, if it were made of tougher, sportier material, a great whitewater-rafting adventure! OK, I'm kind of kidding. What do you think? Tell us in the comments.

When I was bra shopping recently some of those babies looked like flotation devices.
