Adafruit’s FLORA & NeoPixels hit the runway again with Zac Posen, Maddy Maxey and Google’s Made with Code.

Google’s Made with Code initiative has partnered with Zac Posen to inspire girls to try computer science by showing how fashion is made with code. Kicking off the SS16 New York Fashion Week season, Posen will showcase his ZAC Zac Posen Spring-Summer 2016 collection on September 8 and, as the finale look, he will unveil an LED dress coded by girls on the Made with Code site. The technology featured on the LED dress was designed by Maddy Maxey, a 22-year old up-and-coming fashion designer, Made with Code mentor and creative technologist on the collaboration. Last June, Google launched Made with Code, an effort aimed to inspire millions of girls to learn to code, and to help them see coding as a means to pursue their dream careers.

Zac Posen will show his SS16 ZAC Zac Posen collection during New York Fashion Week with a special runway show, to debut the LED Made with Code dress at Industria Superstudio in New York City’s West Village. As part of the program, Google and Posen have invited a group of girls who coded the LED dress via the Made with Code site to attend the NYFW show. All of the girls, plus the show attendees, will be invited to join a reception celebrating the partnership with ZAC Zac Posen, during which each guest will get a chance to try coding.

Zac Posen will celebrate the SS16 ZAC Zac Posen collection with a debut of an LED dress designed by Posen and coded by girls through Google’s Made with Code mission-driven initiative. Expected guests include: Zac Posen, Rumer Willis, First Lady Chirlane McCray, Chiara de Blasio, June Ambrose + Coco Rocha.
