Pauchi Sasaki’s Speaker Dress #WearableWednesday

via FashNerd

When I first laid eyes on the “speaker dress”, it looked like a work of art. Developed by Peruvian Composer and performer Pauchi Sasaki, the shoulder-to-knee dress, made up of 100 speakers, was an out of this world instrument itself, a form of communication between her and us.

Developed in 2014 the Speaker Dress continues to wow in 2017. Two dresses exist nowadays, a black and a white one. There is no denying that the dress is the kind of wearable tech that naturally makes a daring fashion statement of another kind. On her creation, Pauchi has always been unafraid to make it clear that the dress has a more profound meaning than what we visually see. The protegee of Philip Glass explained that for her it was an electrical outlet that allowed her to express herself when she played her violin.

The Peruvian artist, who recently performed wearing the speaker dress at New York’s Carnegie Hall, said of her creation, “I realised that it had a very iconic power and people want to reduce the object and say, ‘Oh, that looks cool.” Adding, “But I really wanted to bring out the spirit of the instrument because of every instrument, like a violin or a piano, has a spirit.”
