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.
