BBC hat für eine Story über die Muster der Sitzbezüge im öffentlichen Nahverkehr die Arbeiten von Menja Stevenson ausgegraben, die 2008 ein paar Kleider aus dem Material gefertigt hat. Von Fashion versteh' ich ja nix, aber auf die Hässlichkeit von ÖPNV-Sitzbezügen können wir uns wohl einigen. (Die BVG hat übrigens Leggins und Shorts und Kram in potthässlichen ÖPNV-Mustern am Start.)

I had to get into contact with the transport companies to get the fabrics; they're not officially available. I had to do a lot of persuasive effort to convince the companies to hand over the fabric! I was very proud of myself when I finally got them. I found some conservative looking dressmaking patterns on the internet, and the bags are my own design. It wasn't easy for me to sew the dresses; the rough and stiff fabric often broke the needles.

Wearing them, you sweat like crazy, they feel like a knight's armor and it's hard to act naturally. I couldn't believe that many people didn't realize the connection seeing me and the seats together. Did they think that it was sheer coincidence? Some curious people at least talked to me, and a very few laughed, but most passengers would look shyly at me and quickly look the other way again.
