This outfit was created alongside Matt Agius for the 2018 Statement Making Fashion Show at UNC Charlotte. RGB LEDs were arranged in a grid-like fashion inside of a shirt we fabricated. Using an arduino, we created multicolored designs that moved across the shirt. The skirt was also fabricated by us, and our power source was kept in the handbag.
