Philip Treacy @ London Fashion Week

Two illuminated hats were created with Moritz Waldemeyer for milliner Philip Treacy’s comeback catwalk show at London Fashion Week 2012. The first used a single row of LEDs placed across the edge of a propeller shaped in the profile of a hat, which when rotated at high speeds created the illusion of a complete hat. The second, a meshed cage interwoven with a series of six thousand LEDs, was programmed to play an animation to surprise the catwalk audience during the show’s finale.
