AURA INSIDE 
Ninety-nine percent of who you are is invisible and untouchable.
- Richard Buckminster Fuller
“Aura Inside” is a hybrid piece, a cross between a garment and an interactive art installation. It brings vivacity to the experience of wearing couture, and a means of embodying effervescence. The name “Aura Inside” invokes the emanation of our invisible energies, and references the way the piece is presented: with the front and back split open, allowing one access into the core of it.
The silhouette is cosmic, entirely hand-embroidered and luminous. The motifs are inspired by the idea of the infinite; constellations, what is intangible and esoteric. Equipped with temperature sensors, this interactive dress uses the body's heat to have one's Aura come to life.
