by ANJA DRAGAN
Anja Dragan graduated with an MA in fashion design from the Dutch ArtEZ Academy of Art & Design in 2015. During her studies, she held an internship with the couturier Iris van Herpen and took on an exchange semester at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Her work has won several prizes and was part of exhibitions and shows across Europe. She is now based in Berlin where she works on various fashion- and art-related projects that connect visual, verbal and performance media.
Inspired by the White Nights – nights that are never completely dark – Dragan created a jacket that is lit with 336 Osram LEDs.
The technology integrates active lighting on fabrics that can be washed, draped or ironed and have therefore all the properties needed for garment production. The piece is powered by a hidden rechargeable battery.
