Without pretending to be a oracle that knows what’s in the fashion stores of the future I do see light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to illuminated clothing.
The idea of illuminating clothing for aesthetic purpose has been around for some time and Cute Circuit started the commercialization of illuminated clothing earlier this year with their Twirkle collection.
2011 seems to see more light coming down the runway thanks to ‘Moon Berlin‘, a Berlin based fashion-label founded by Brigitte Franken and Christian Bruns with the aim to combine light technique with high fashion in a sensitive way.
Using light as a sophisticated design element to create many different aspects and effects, Moon Berlin cooperated with Stretchable Circuits, a spin-off from the Fraunhofer Institut which developed the soft circuit technique used in Moon Berlin’s first illuminated fashion collection which will be launched in 2011.
A sneak peek on MOON Berlin’s illuminated fashion can be seen in the video below.
