See my vest, see my vest, made from real gorilla chest ... (sing along!)


vest with white LED outlines

This black vest with a high, rounded neckline was decorated with white LED strings around the edges of each front panel. In this example, the white wires between the lights are exposed, so that the lights are visible whether they are on of off.

suit jacket lining and vest

This illuminated jacket and vest set was designed to produce the effect of glowing from within. It was commissioned by award-winning artist and lighting designer Ingo Maurer, to be worn to a variety of international exhibitions.

The electric illuminated vest is covered with several hundred red and white LEDs that can be lit up separately.

The removable jacket lining, shown below, can be taken out when the outer jacket is cleaned. It can also be pinned to the interior of other jackets.
