“Rhyme&reason” is an exploration in using light as a material to create transformative fashions. Unlike most LED clothing, which make the wearer look like a neon lamp, the designs from Rhyme & Reason are stunning pieces you could actually wear.
Designer Mary Huang says, “Integrating technology into a wearable piece can often be cumbersome, so in a successful piece, the design must outshine the technology.”
Her lighted fashion line, aptly called Rhyme & Reason, also includes an LED scarf. The scarf is made from machine-knit material and the dress is a combination of woven cotton jersey and hand-crocheted flowers. About two dozen bright white LEDs are embedded in each.
No word on pricing yet. It is mentioned that “when not in use, the pieces double in function as lamps, avoiding the fate of hanging neglected in a closet”.
