Black Eyed Peas star Fergie raised the bar in fashion at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, sporting a dynamic luminous dress while performing.
The head-turning frock, designed by Philips Lighting in collaboration with Stylist B. Akerlund, was custom made for the star after she requested a special frock that lit up while she danced to the music.
“When Fergie challenged us to create something new for her, we wanted to design something that could bring an additional dimension to their audience and help showcase how light can further enhance experiences,” Rogier van der Heide, Chief Design Officer for Philips said. “What is remarkable with this dress is the way the lighting is integrated with the fabric and works in tandem with the beat of the music.”
Rogier continues: “For us, creating this dress was not only about the aesthetics, it is about viewer experience and impact - enhancing the artist’s performance through application of lighting.”
Well, it certainly got our attention!
