Shedding Some Light on Wearable Electronics and the Music Industry |

Both fashion and electronics are each such a part of the music industry, but things get quirky when the three converge on stage. Here are some of my favorite ways designers have managed to help music stars really light up the stage:

Daft Punk, 2007

For their Alive 2007 tour, Daft Punk toured the world in clothing designed by Enlighted Designs (run by President and Chief Fashion Engineer Janet Cooke Hansen). The outfits “glowed in the dark” by way of EL wire that was strategically placed to define the look for each member of the group. And on each jacket, the Daft Punk logo was illuminated with the help of roughly 300 LEDs.

OK Go, 2007

Wearable Tech Artist Moritz Waldemeyer created LED embellished jackets for the US band OK Go to use during a tour. The jackets debuted on November 22, 2007 and according to Waldemeyer, “LED lights embedded in their jackets run through a sequence that makes up the letters O,K,G,O – like a Vegas slot-machine scrolling through its symbols to spell the band’s name”. (Waldemeyer is also famous in the fashion world for collaborating with Fashion Designer Hussein Chalayan on a very sparkly Swarovski and LED infused collection.)

Katy Perry, 2010

Katy Perry rocked a silk chiffon gown created by CuteCircuit that was unlike any other couture gown at the MET Costume Institute Gala that night- this one light up in rainbow colors from the work of more than 3,000 LEDs.

Rihanna, 2010

Exactly one week after Katy Perry dazzled the paparazzi in New  York City, Rihanna gave a performance at London’s O2 Arena in a black dress decorated with hundreds of tiny glowing red lights. The creative brains behind this gown? Fashion Designer Alexandre Vauthier and Wearable Tech Artist Moritz Waldemeyer.

Who do you think will light up the stage next?

When Style Bloggers Turn Haute DIY Designers….

By Jessie Thorpe, Denimology

As fashion bloggers, we look for great fashion at affordable prices. Unfortunately, most times high fashion comes at a substantial price tag. Some of us get emphatically crafty to achieve the cultivated couture look we seek. By making adroit changes to items (sometimes slightly pass their prime) they become stylishly spectacular! For instance, my favorite links this week all happen to be DIY projects! These bloggers made tutorials for their colorblock hair accessories, faux Phillip Lim slacks and my favorite, DIY sparkle glitter boots!
