These coats were made for two Barry Manilow fans to wear on their road trip to Las Vegas, for a concert in early 2020. They supplied two white brocade dinner jackets with black collars, which we upgraded to peak Vegas style with a custom LED installation.
The name 'Manilow' is written on the back of each jacket in embroidered block letters, and illuminated with a steady blue glow from LED backlighting mounted inside the coat. On the collars, we mounted 10 miniature blue LEDs with the lenses exposed on the outside so that they look like clear gemstones. These lights are animated with a few different twinkling and chasing effects, as well as a steady glowing option.
The clips below show the animation patterns on the collar.
