My love for ’60s electric-dress designer Diana Dew and electric-dress wearer Tiger Morse means I’m always on the lookout for light-up clothes. Thank you to gorgeous blogger Dawn Del Russo for tweeting Halston’s glow-in-the-dark dress.
It doesn’t turn on with a switch like a Diana Dew original, but it’s probably less dangerous. As Richie Berlin said in Edie: An American Girl:
“Diana Dew, the electric-dress designer for Paraphernalia, had those dresses where the tits would light up; or you could flash the crotch and that would go off. But they weren’t fool-proof, and one night two girls went totally off in Max’s! I mean, right off. They went BOOM! It’s true.”
Lighting up the fashion scene is good. Exploding? Not so much.
