CuteCircuit first came onto our radar back in 2009 with their design of the world’s largest wearable display. Now it looks like the London-based atelier is back once again, this time with a glowing gown powered by 10,000 embroidered LEDs. Designed for an opera singer, the piece recently debuted at a private event hosted by Breitling, captivating an audience with its hypnotic glow.
Nobody does high-tech couture quite like CuteCircuit can. After bringing us the world’s largest wearable display in 2009, the London-based atelier dressed a young opera singer in a hypnotic gown powered by 10,000 embroidered LEDs.
The pulsating silk-chiffon number, which debuted at a private event hosted by Breitling, features hundreds of Swarovski crystals in a kinetic landscape of pattern and color. The overall effect brings to mind the aurora borealis phenomenon, as well as Aurora dress, the Roman goddess of dawn who flies across the sky each morning to herald the arrival of the sun.
