Illuminated Topaz Dress

Moritz Waldemeyer, Deborah Milner, and Ostro Minerals create a glowing topaz dress for Daphne Guinness.

To celebrate the unveiling of the world’s largest cut Topaz at the Natural History Museum in London, designers Moritz Waldemeyer and Deborah Milner created a bodysuit using blue topaz stones and LED lighting.

Each topaz stone was individually addressable to change colour and respond to the music and events of the evening.
