Red Carpet fashion sparks DIY craze?

Last year Cate Blanchett wore this dress from Romance was Born to the opening of ACMI’s Screen Worlds exhibition.  A few weeks later, I was braving the Saturday queue at Spotlight when I noticed they had copied the design and written a crochet pattern for a version of the dress.  I thought this was hilarious, I loved the idea that instead of high street designers copying Red Carpet looks and dropping them into stores in their hundreds as fast as they can, people instead are taking up their crochet hooks, raiding their grandmother’s cupboards for left over wool and creating their own red carpet looks.  Plausible?  Perhaps not, but it does make me consider the sorts of alternative scenarios that one might hope to create.
