Pink Ballroom Dress

Enlighted was commissioned to design and create the lighting for this pink dress, to be used in ballroom dancing competitions.  Our client has been thrilled with the results, and has already won the top prize at two events.

We installed 80 RGB LED pixels in an inner layer of the skirt, so that the light is diffused by the outer sheer layers of fabric.  This outer layer also helps to conceal the lights before the big "reveal" moment in the routine.

Using a custom LED driver, the lights are animated with a mix of white and pink light in a subtle twinkling effect.


The on/off switch is mounted near the center back at the waistline, so that her dance partner could turn the lights on at a specific time in the routine.


The clip below demonstrates the animation effects in the dress.
