A project exploring touch and clothing. A series of clothing that creates a sense of connection between people.
The first outfit is a skirt and blouse. When someone holds the wearer around the waist, she lights up, skirt embedded with fiber optics and blouse with LEDs. The second outfit is a man’s shirt with a target on the breast pocket. If someone touches the target, the opening of the shirt glows red. These two together are what constitute Me & Mrs. Jones, inspired by the jazz song of two people coming together for a secret rendezvous.
