This is the Galaxy dress. Not the ubiquitous Roland Mouret, no, this Galaxy is by Cutecircuit. The dress has a 40-layer pleated silk chiffon crinoline and has four layers on top to diffuse the 24,000 full-color LEDs. Each of the flat, extra-thin LEDs measure 2×2 millimetres. The circuitry, so fine, was hand-embroidered on a layer of silk to retain the fluidity of fabric.
It's quite dazzling but I think Hussein Chalayan did a more interesting version for Fall 2007.
