Day-For-Night | The Solar Dress

Here’s a fascinating but seemingly impractical garment for you high-powered ladies who enjoy the outdoors: the eco-chic Day-For-Night dress. Created as a “celebration of the beauty of electronics”, this sexy white frock contains 448 white circuit boards tiles that accommodate solar cells, RGB LEDs or photocells and jumper connections in the form of 0 Ohm resistors. Power is provided by a control board that communicates with the tiles and links to your computer via RF.

For all of you non-dorks out there, this means the dress is designed to soak up solar energy during the day and be used as a high-fashion battery at night. Not sure why someone would want this (though I bet it would be super cool on a dance floor), but I supposed if you could somehow plug your TV into it, it could provide some nice off-the-grid entertainment. Not to mention lots of attention while you’re sitting in the park gathering energy from the sun’s rays.

Designed as an homage to Paco Rabanne, who is famously quoted as saying “the only new frontier left in fashion is the finding of new materials”, the Day-For-Night dress premiered at the Siggraph Fashion Show.
