This glowing LED dress was made with 24,000 full-color LEDs. Two London-based fashion designers, Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz, created the garment called the ‘Galaxy Dress.’ It will be the centerpiece exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago.

The LED dress was created by hand embroidering extra-thin, flexible layers of LED circuits on silk. The LED dress is designed to be illuminated using many miniscule iPod batteries that are hidden in the dress’s crinoline.

The LED dress will stay lit for 30 minutes to an hour. Aside from the 24,000 LEDs the dres is also decorated with over 4000 Swarovski crystals.
