Spring/Summer 2007 "One Hundred and Eleven" RTW Collection[edit | edit source]

Lady Gaga did not wear any outfits from this collection. However, this collection is the inspiration for the Bubble Dress along with the Living Dress. The Bubble Dress was made by Muto-Little Costumes and a sash version and a jacket version were also made later. For a Rolling Stone photoshoot, a custom glass bubbles bodysuit was created by Michael Schmidt Studios. The senior animatronic designer on this collection, Adam Wright, also worked on the Living Dress along with Vinilla Burnham for Jim Henson's Creature Shop.

In 2013, TechHaus with Studio XO created Anemone, the bubble dress 2.0 which included its own electric automated soap bubble machine. A nod to Gaga who blew soap bubbles while wearing the bubble dress at The Fame Ball in 2009.
