WELL-LIT PROJECT

BY MANU VARAS

 

THE DESIGNER

The daughter of an architect and the granddaughter of a dressmaker, Manu Varas grew up with a passion for painting, drawing and design. She graduated from the Berlin-based Esmod International Fashion University in October 2016 and took on a placement in London, where she completed an internship at Osman studio and at the Ciment pleating factory. She is now part of the “Designer in residence” program at TheStudio by ElektroCouture where she experiments with integrating electronics into clothing.

 

THE CONCEPT

Well-lit project is an intelligent ready-to-wear ensemble, designed to provide light in the darkness and give a symbolic feeling of safety and comfort. A high-tech water repelling fabric is combined with a new smart textile, developed by Pyrates company that improves blood circulation, thermal function and skin moisture.

 

THE TECHNOLOGY

The designer integrated LEDs and connected them to a light sensor, which reacts to the outfit’s surroundings – the garments will automatically start to glow in the dark.
