Kinetic Dress

Kinetic Dress is a Victorian inspired evening gown reactive to the wearer’s activities and mood.The Kinetic Dress is sewn of an elastic textile embedded with sensors that follows closely the body of the wearer. The sensors are able to capture the wearer’s movements and interaction with others and display this data through the electroluminescent embroidery that covers the external skirt section of the dress. Depending on the amount and speed of the wearer’s movement the electroluminescent embroidery changes pattern,

displaying the wearer’s mood to the audience and creating a magic halo around her.

The algorithmic program that controls the Kinetic Dress is designed to follow the pace of the wearer: a still pose, when sitting alone shows a black dress, when the wearer starts moving and interacting with others the dress slowly lights up with a blue-circles pattern that moving creates a magic halo around the wearer.
