Fairytale Fashion Show

Diana Eng's Fairytale Fashion Show from iHeartSwitch on Vimeo.

Wednesday night at Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, Diana Eng showcased her Fairytale Fashon Show with soft glowing dresses, twinkling skirts, modular oragami shapes, and a lighted balloon releasing gown.

Everything that I enjoy was there: intricate sewn lighting, playful geometric silhouettes, and a nice light airy feel to the fabrics. My favorite piece of the whole show was the nostalgic plastic necklaces that held the electronic components.

The hidden gems of the show were the women behind the music, Sarah and Lara Grant of Felted Signal Processing. They performed as an ensemble with Peter Kirn and Matt Ganucheau. Lara (pictured) was on her augmented sewing machine and Sarah showed off her latest experiment Fortune Teller.

Hi See-ming, thanks for your comment. Our site does allow guest commenting. Registration is not required. We are considering implementing Facebook Connect system to let people use their Facebook identity here, but it may take a while. Disqus seems like a good solution too. We'll look into it.

This is great. Thanks for using my photos!

Btw, Peter Kirn has shared his soundtrack with me in full res so if you want to get a better audio track to go with your video, you should ping him at @peterkirn

Also, I wonder why you decided to use your own commenting system? Requiring sign up to post comments tend to limit the amount of comments you may get. You might want to look into Disqus, which is a very cool system that integrates easily with all popular blogging platforms as well as completely custom. (I'm not affiliated with them but I recently tried them out and it's been very effective for me) :)
