So nice to meet MOON Berlin in Berlin !
MOON Berlin‘s fine garments glow with sleek and exquisite engineering by Stretchable Circuits. On an exclusive tour of their studio, the fabrics shimmered while fiber optics glimmered. We imagined that they must design and sew completely in the dark…
The studio is full of high tech or hoch tech designs that are custom tailored in Berlin and are able to be dry cleaned ! This is a monumental moment in history as illuminated fashion translates to daily dress. MOON Berlin’s classic lines and luxurious fabrics invite the revolution with flexible and washable circuits.
Christian Bruns, the owner, notes that currently illuminated fashion is sought for special occasions, when one wants to be the center of attention, like perhaps a birthday or celebration. Their top seller is the Illuminated Fiber Optic Rose. // photo on left.
SENSOREE first met MOON Berlin on the CES FashionWare show runway in Las Vegas 2012. It was fate as we actually shared a model. Here are a few images from backstage:

Enjoy the after-glow!
