Everyone wants to have their say. Melding obsolete fashion with modern technology, Reflections is inspired by the highly structured garments of the Victorian era.
MakeFashion 2015 Gala
Reflections was created for the MakeFashion 2015 Gala as a tech couture design suitable for formal or cocktail events. It is an historically informed modern take on the cocktail dress. The dress reflects thoughts and emotions on LED matrix displays using a bluetooth connection and a smart phone app. The dress is made of silk and is composed of two pieces: the cocktail dress and the hoop skirt. Both parts contain their own electrical systems. The electronics are removable so that the dress can be dry cleaned. The Reflections dress even has it's own hashtag!
Cocktail Dress Bodice
Accentuating the design lines of the bodice, programmable LED strips run a constantly changing generative animation based on the doppler redshift. It is never the same twice.
