4th Annual SIGGRAPH
Cyberfashion Show

Los Angeles Convention Center
Los Angeles, CA

August 3, 2005

This show continues to grow, and offers an impressive variety of wearable technology, including smart clothes, wearable computers, illuminated clothing, and other futuristic designs.

Janet Hansen of Enlighted served on the crew as Head Wardrobe Coordinator, and was largely responsible for combining the technical and non-technical pieces into full outfits, assigning them to models, organizing the overall order of the show, and trying to maintain sanity in the dressing room backstage.

Enlighted also participated by contributing several full outfits, including illuminated dresses and faux-fur coats with fiber optics. The "Bovine Rex" coat was co-designed and built by Brett Spivey, who served as Head Video Coordinator of the show.

Extensive press for the show included a segment on NPR and a front page article in Apparel News.
