waldemeyer + philip treacy: electronic haute couture

waldemeyer + philip treacy: electronic haute couture.

german-born designer moritz waldemeyer has teamed with british milliner philip treacy for london fashion week. the merging of technology and fashion has seen a variety of ambitious head ware pieces gracing the catwalk – the collaboration honoring the master hat designer’s return to the british capital after 12 years for the most hotly anticipated in vogue event.

waldemeyer created two pieces for the show – a full body garment and an illuminated head piece – both informed by the concept of weightlessness as part of the brief for the exhibit. the head piece is characterized by a seamless band of light sweeping around the head with no palpable physical connection to the wearer at all. this effect was realized due to a strategically positioned and custom designed wearable propeller  – each blade glowing with LEDs. this means that when the device is in motion the propellers themselves vanish to only leave behind a suspended glowing halo.
