In 2009 Rihanna performed at the American Music Award show wearing this futuristic outfit featuring more than 50 lasers. This piece is a collaboration between my studio, Rihanna’s styling team and Simon Henwood, who masterminded the entire performance.
In 2010 she opened her UK shows at the O2 arena with our brand new exploding dress that revealed the LED dress shown above. Our engineering team again pushed the envelope of high tech fashion using a unique combination of compressed gas systems and video capable LED circuits to fulfill the most challenging of design briefs yet from fine artist and creative director Simon Henwood. Both dress and jacket were designed by Paris based couturier Alexandre Vauthier.
