I wasn’t quite sure whether I should feature this particular creation because I am not sure if fabric is eco friendly, however the concept is and the dress is way too innovative and chic to not show you all.

This dress is called Flare and is the invention of Dutch designer Stijn Ossevoort, who studied both industrial engineering and art design and uses his work as a way to show the way we relate to products, in this case LEDs, lightweight and energy efficient lights. Often used to light living spaces, he has attached them to a dress. The LEDs are powered by wind energy and as the wearer moves the dress glows and lights up in various formations.

Though not super wearable or likely to catch on, the Flare dress definitely makes a statement in regards to the way we light our living spaces and the ability and responsibility we have to find alternate sources of energy.
