Janice Martin Couture and Lee Wainwright design an interactive wedding gown

Oct 31st

Lee Wainwright and Janice Martin collaborated in the first Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA) when they designed seven gowns shown at the fashion show finale, all with state of the art fiber optic lighting in them. Now they’ve teamed up again… and the simple, columnar pink wedding gown is showcased in the window at Janice Martin Couture for all to see. The surprise is in the train… a fiber optics design made for a bride and controlled by her smartphone… or by that of guests at her wedding… or now, by you!

Janice Martin collaborated with Lee Wainwright in designing a wedding gown for his bride-to-be Miko Green. The gown features “origami inspired folds” at the bust as well as the train in honor of her Japanese heritage. To complement the gown, Wainwright designed fiber optics for the removable train as he had always wanted to design one with “flowers and vines that grow”. When the lights are activated, the vine grows, the flowers “bloom” and the butterflies fly. The flowers, vines, and butterfly colors (and the speed at which they change) can be altered by anyone with a smartphone who is within range.

Feel free to visit, bring your smartphone… check out a truly unique bridal gown with state of the art technology!
