Professor John Gallaugher is out with another excellent project tutorial on YouTube.
Tutorial: Build a Python-powered, Bluetooth app-controlled Smart Tie using CircuitPython and the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express Bluefruit. No soldering required. Works well with other garments like skirts and scarves, as well.
The tie is controlled via the free Adafruit Bluetooth app available on iOS and Android.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Thank you John for this excellent tutorial.
I really appreciated the pace of the presentation. You go straight to the point, while recalling some tips to avoid leaving the learner in difficulty. The speech is relevant and effective. The project you implemented is really great! All the steps are clearly detailed and will allow as many people as possible to reproduce them easily.
I particularly appreciated your talents as a fashion designer 😉
Congratulations and thank you again John for this contribution.
