Be there by downloading the FREE iPhone app (Bright Lights).

Tonight, alfalfa studio will be part of a fashion competition. Anyone can vote for our creation via the Bright Lights app.

Yes, for “Bright Lights: the AIGA Awards,” Rafael Esquer was invited to create a one-of-a-kind outfit using lights!

While creating our suit — named Hands Down— we were inspired by the art objects of surrealist Méret Oppenheim and the soft sculptures of Yayoi Kusama, the Hands Down suit transforms everyday objects— via texture, repetition and scale— into an extraordinary wearable sculpture. Constructed with gloves and lights, Hands Downs reminds us that to float above the real all we have to do is defamiliarize our way of seeing.

The celebratory event “Bright Lights,” honors the 2010 AIGA Medalists Steve Frykholm, John Maeda and Jennifer Morla—as well as Method and Tiffany & Co., recipients of the 2010 AIGA Corporate Leadership Award.

From the AIGA event page “Design leaders from across the country will be attending this celebration to honor those whose exemplary work inspires and defines the profession. Inspired by the sparkling lights of the Manhattan skyline at night, this glamorous evening will benefit current and future generations of designers.”

This is a competition, so download the Bright Lights app and vote for alfalfa’s Hands Down piece.

By the way, the Bright Lights app is one of the nicest I’ve seen, a beautiful integration of design and technology. See for yourself!
