Lunar Gala 2012: Lux
Blurring the lines between fashion and technology, Lux combines concepts in electrical engineering and computer science with modern trends and glamorous fashion. Lux integrates electronics and light in a natural, unobtrusive way, as opposed to the more gaudy, avant-garde style of most current wearable technology.
We successfully funded our fashion line on Kickstarter by raising $400 above our initial goal of $1,600. I assisted with the fundraiser efforts and designed the promotional materials rewarded to the backers. You can view our Kickstarter page here.
Dress Plus: Facial Recognition Fashion
Future developments of our project is the connection of one of our dresses with facial recognition software to detect and reflect the emotions of the model.
Lunar Gala 2013: Wanderlust
Wanderlust is defined as "A desire to travel, to understand one's very existence". An Autumn/Winter collection designed and constructed for Lunar Gala 2013 inspired by my travels abroad. Wanderlust incorporates deep fall tones, 3-dimenstional fabric techniques and leathers.
