Swarovski's LED couture


If you're like us, you're probably sitting there thinking, "Why don't I have more seizures?" Well luckily crystal-maker Swarovski and designer Hussein Chalayan have got you covered -- literally. This dress was shown for the company's 2007-2008 collection, and while we've seen this kind of thing before, this garment functions a little differently. Beneath the translucent crystal "material" is a grid of LED chips, which display patterns and can apparently run short video clips. For you fashion plates eager to pick one up, the cost will clock in around $16,000. How you sit down and the amount of D batteries required is currently unknown.
