Glow is a dress that senses and responds to its wearer's movement, echoing the quality of that movement through its own dynamic patterns of illumination. Without motion, the dress remains quiet, a static form; with motion, it comes alive with light. The wearer's gestures are amplified and transformed into elegant, luminous gestures that ripple through the entire garment.
