MakeFashion Showcase:

Color-Changing LED Chameleon Cocktail Dress

Iconic MakeFashion LED dress changes color and patterns.

The Chameleon Cocktail Dress is one of the earliest MakeFashion garments, showcased at the 2013 gala. Despite being nearly 5 years old today, it is still one of the most iconic and showstopping wearable tech garments our organization has showcased.

The dress contains LED strip lighting that is embedded within a silver dress. With the lights turned off, the dress hides it’s technology completely. When the lights are turned on, it explodes into dramatic illuminated colors.
