Thanks to Flavia for writing in to share her gorgeous wearable garment with us! Check out a bunch more photos and info on her site here. She writes:
Ester is a piece of transformative fashion; combining delicate handcrafting with cutting edge wearable technology. The skirt is sculpted from cane, creating a light but durable skeleton. Covering the skirt and the bodice are over 1000 hand-cut paper petals, and integrated into the edges of the dress are hundreds of addressable NeoPixel LEDs. An Arduino Lilypad controls the functions of the lights, allowing each individual LED to be programmed to any behaviour or RBG colour. These lights diffuse underneath the paper dress, allowing the garment to bloom and transforming it into a wearable light show.
Ester is designed to be striking in light and darkness, and was a finalist in the Open Section of this year’s World of Wearable Art Show, recently winning the People’s Choice Award.
