This custom Enlighted jacket is decorated with about 1000 RGB LED pixels covering the front, back, arms, and collar. The name 'Ashraf' is also illuminated on the back, with RGB LED backlighting behind sheer embroidered letters. The entire coat is covered with a sheer gold mesh with mini sequins, to conceal the wiring while letting light pass through.
The lights are animated in a variety of patterns, including a rainbow plaid, a red/pink/gold plaid, and red, gold, and white twinkling effects.
Our client for this project was Ashraf Habibulah, CEO of Computers and Structures, Inc. He wore the jacket when he made his grand entrance at CSI's 44rd annual gala in March 2019.
Ashraf is a longtime collector of Enlighted wearable art, and uses these clothes for public speaking appearances, many of which can be seen on his YouTube channel.
Some other pieces we've made for him include: a black suit jacket with RGB LEDs (with matching pants and bowtie), a black vest with white LEDs, a black suit with white LEDs, a red jacket with white LEDs, a white jacket with RGB LEDs, a red sequined jacket with white LEDs, a silver jacket with cool white LEDs, a metallic gold jacket with gold LEDs, a set of matching suit, pants, jacket and shoes with red and white LEDs, and this black coat with gold LEDs, from 2010.
The clip below shows some of the animation patterns, viewed from the front and the back.
