TWITTER JACKET

AUT BUSINESS AWARDS

2017

Made for Sarah Trotman for the AUT Excellence in Business Support Awards, 2017

IN COLLABORATION WITH YVETTE HOPKINS

CONCEPT

After an extremely successful awards last year with the Twitter Frock, the garment is back but this year in the form of a jacket. This year we wanted to create a Twitter garment that was more versatile so Sarah could wear to other events such as The YWCA Equal Pay Awards. 

 

Incorporating NeoPixel LEDs throughout the jacket using innovative textile-based circuitry and Arduino computing, the jacket comes to life whenever the hashtag “#AUTBizAwards” is mentioned on Twitter.
