Anouk Wipprecht Car Part Dresses #WearableWednesday

lights-1024x724

Anouk Wipprecht made a collection of dresses from car parts. On Wearable Style News:

For the second outfit, the LED Matrix Dress, Wipprecht arranged components of Audi’s LED Matrix headlights in a circular pattern on the front of the piece. The 60-watt lights turn on and off, making the wearer look like she physically embodies a car’s headlights. The final two pieces, both called Shield Dresses, also include the Audi Ultrasonic RangeFinder sensors. The designer manipulated the sensors—designed to notify drivers of the proximity of another vehicle to the car—to do the same for the human body. Each dress also features 20-watt LEDs that get brighter the closer someone moves into the wearer’s personal space.

  1. Something about those pictures make me think of the costumes from the musical Starlight Express:
