Lighted Wedding Cape

Enlighted was commissioned to illuminate the cape portion of a bridal outfit (it was photographed in our studio without the matching dress). The cape is made from several layers of beige organza with asymmetrical folds and draping. Warm white LEDs were embedded in one of the inner layers of the cape, creating a diffused effect within the folds. 

In 2009, the complete outfit was presented at a fashion competition for the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), where it won first place in the Contemporary Dress Design category. It was co-designed by Christopher Kennedy,, and Susan Huey Oster,


The lights were animated with a soft twinkling pattern, as shown in the clip below.
