Neon Rainbows Evoke the Iconic Geometry of Tod’s Signature Collection
A pulsing grid of fluorescent lighting replaces imprinted leather in fashion filmmaker Bart Hess’s new short for Italian luxury leather label Tod’s. Taking the brand’s iconic circles-and-diamonds pattern as inspiration, the maverick Dutch director created a futuristic neon cityscape to explore the interplay of light on material. “I wanted to see the pattern reflected in all kinds of materials, because it can tell you a lot about surface and quality,” explains Hess. Shooting in Eindhoven’s cutting-edge Temporary Arts Centre, Hess crafted an installation of 81 light tubes to illuminate the exclusive next-season pieces by the cult leather maker. “In the film we show the light cycle of a day, from sunrise to sunset. At the moment when the girl decides to go to the pool a blackout takes place,” he elaborates. “When the lights turn back on there has been an upgrade and now everything is in multicolor. The city comes alive.” Best known for the otherworldly slime outfits he created for Lady Gaga, Hess has made sculptural costumes for the likes of American Vogue and AnOther Magazine, Parisian art center Palais de Tokyo, and photographer Nick Knight, as well as collaborating on textiles with fashion designers such as Walter Van Beirendonck, Iris van Herpen, and Ann-Sofie Back.
This summer, Denver production legends Futuristic Films and motion design boutique Spillt came together to create a truly innovative and never before seen event for Forever 21 and Space150. This unique collaboration combined the full gamut of production capabilities including using 3D rendering techniques, custom screens, green screen video shoots, high-end projectors, special effects, and tens of thousands of key frames. We created a never-before-seen fashion show experience. This new event premiered during the Forever 21 store grand opening in Vienna, Austria and has since been seen in similar events in Belgium, London, New York, Los Angeles and many more.
The primary goal of the fashion show is to highlight the new line, allowing the audience to look at as many models as possible from as many angles as possible. By infusing the show with holographic technology, we were able to maximize the number of models and the angles from which the audience sees them.

Galerija 12+ has designed and produced futuristic concept for Fashion Infection retail store in Belgrade.
The futuristic film classic, "Blade Runner," promised a race "more human than human."The futuristic film classic, "Blade Runner," promised a race "more human than human." Dr Sabine Seymour transforms this slice of science-fiction into reality, embodying the superhuman ideals of brain and beauty, by envisioning "technology on the body as a second skin." Heralded as a visionary, Seymour spearheaded a movement in "Fashionable Wearables"—a term Seymour uses to describe "designed garments, accessories or jewelry that combine aesthetics and style with functional technology." Ushering in a new generation of technology driven textile designers, Seymour also serves as Director of the Fashionable Technology Lab at Parsons The New School for Design and lectures internationally at Ars Electronica, Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, Smart Fabrics, and ISEA. All of this made her a perfect resource to curate Motorola's Fashion X Technology Exhibition.
