Getting a Charge Out of Dutch Designer’s Flare Fashion

This little LED number called Flare is the sustainable party girl’s answer to looking beautiful and technically tailored. Imagine showing up at the company holiday party aglow in the Stijn Ossevoort creation!

In spite of all the buzz from the gadget geeks proclaiming the wonders of wearing something as fashion-forward as Flare, one question keeps flashing like a red light: What if it gets wet?

No worries. The Flare dress runs on wind energy which means if worn correctly (read: walk really fast) the dandelions will light up from your personally generated breezes.

Sure, your sweat might trigger a zap, but what the heck. Don’t you want to be known as the sustainable energy employee at the office? The woman who lives and breathes eco-advancement? The one who brings her reusable bottle to dish at the water cooler?

Many of your co-workers will swear they saw you surrounded in light the following Monday. Others will say the dress was an epiphany that fashion can be more than a beauty statement. You will be busy recharging for the next appearance.
