The “Luminous Firefly Dress” synthesizes our ideas on how body gesture, light, color and sound enhance personal expression and identity. It represents Angela’s research in sensorial interpersonal communication and Harry’s interest in integrating natural forms with design. The wearer is endowed with the properties of a firefly, synaesthetically able to express herself through light or camouflage herself among her surroundings.
The “Luminous Firefly Dress” creation exemplifies how the experience of nature entices art and science into inquiry and experimentation. Our creation strives to emulate and theatricize on the runway the magic of the many interactions in the the natural world that Involve communication with light, color and sound.
