Personal style is often reflective of the wearer's mood, a concept which the 'Synapse' dress takes to entirely new levels.

Created by Dutch designer Anouk Wipprecht, this dress monitors the wearer's heartbeat, and lights up in sync with it. Every time the wearer's heart beats, the dress lights up, meaning the dress will display if a wearer if a wearer is resting, nervous, or startled, based on the rapidness of the flickering. The garment, which was created with the intention of reflecting the wearer's emotions, could immediately indicate if an individual is enjoying a conversation, or if an individual is attracted to another person.

This dress indicates the positive relationship between technology and fashion, in addition to the creative possibilities technology offers designers.
