Since the creation of the Lumen Couture Projection Hat Dress, I’ve been on the lookout for other designers using projection technology in their work.

French designer Franck Sorbier utilized projection mapping technology in his Fall/Winter 2012-2013 runway collection. Inspired by the classic French fairytale Peau d’Âne (Donkeyskin), the designer partnered with Intel for the support on the project.

The designer describes his collection as “a bridge between the past, the present and what the future could be.” The presentation of the dress represented story of the fairytale’s princess and her adventures through the images displayed on the garment.
