PrizeHonorable Mention in Fashion Design
Victorian inspired evening purse that subtly glows from within through artwork, evoking Art Nouveau backlit works like Tiffany's stained glass pieces or Paris Metro entrances. Artwork series include NASA, The Masters and Charlotte Gibb. The purse is handmade of leather in Italy, the artwork and electronics are designed and made in San Francisco. Luminare is the first fashion accessory to successfully blend technology into fashion seamlessly. Most people cannot identify the action of the purse as electrical. It comes across as "magic".
