Hussein Chalayan: Digital Apparel

Hussein Chalayan is a master at  incorporating technology into fashion design. In this clip, he explains how small lasers are used to add an intense sparkle effect to a dress from his S/S 2008 collection.

  1. I like Hussein Chalayan. He's definitely one to watch. I predicted that he would say that dress was purely for the runway because it would probably set the wearer on fire rather than just creating a fiery illusion.

    I like how he isn't a scientist but wants to connect with it. He wasn't exactly accurate with his explanation of geology, but I liked how he is brave to observe other fields that normally wouldn't be related to fashion.
