A Light Up Wedding Dress From Optic Fibres

Optic Dress


The wedding dress dreams are made of!   The picture says it all.

What woman would not want to wear an optic dress at their wedding?  The wedding dress is the one dress that a woman wants to stand out in.   One which she spends quite a time choosing.  One which she plans to keep for many years, albeit in storage.  Who would have thought of a light up wedding dress!

Then there is the prom dress!  A fibre optic prom dress would surely be the dress chosen for those who want to create a memorable occasion.

But how many of us have been privy to seeing such a dress?

There are many questions, I for one would need to know before I ventured into creating a dress or any garment with fibre optics.

  1. Exactly what is fibre optics?
  2. What are the advantages of fibre optics in creating a special garment?
  3. What tools would I need working with fibre optics?
  4. What problems could arise using an optical fibre?
  5. What would the standard weight of the optical fibre be?

I’ve found a video which answers some of those questions and more.

Fibre Optics is a relatively new material process to help your projects stand out from the crowd.

Info from the above video:

      • Fibre Optics are plastic strands that carry light from one end of the fabric to another.
      • It can be woven into most fabrics.
      • One of the perks of using this medium is knowing how little electronics know how you actually need to know in order to use it.
      • You can light up your fibre optic fabric with several different colours per piece giving a beautiful striped effect.

The following from

E-textiles, also known as smart garmentssmart clothingelectronic textilessmart textiles, or smart fabrics, are fabrics that enable digital components (including small computers), and electronics to be embedded in them. Smart textiles are fabrics that have been developed with new technologies that provide added value to the wearer. Pailes-Friedman of the Pratt Institute states that “what makes smart fabrics revolutionary is that they have the ability to do many things that traditional fabrics cannot, including communicate, transform, conduct energy and even grow”.

Hope you enjoy the video and all the information on the Wikipedia page.  Do let me know if you or anyone you know, works in this medium.
