FotoLum, a small company really big on innovations, is set to auction off a custom designer, one-of-a-kind, show-stopper jacket. The handmade jacket glows in the dark with an incredible intensity, energy free! No batteries required, kids!
The company intends to make only one of these hand made fashion statements. Forget about turning heads. This jacket will spin them like a top! The jacket appears to have a life of its own through the pure energy it emits. No need for candles during that romantic candlelight dinner.
FotoLum searched the elite world of fashion design and managed to locate an obscure Frenchman in the foothills of the Pyrenees. That man is La Maistre; eccentric, talented and virtually unknown. The canvas he uses to express his art is not the traditional range of rich fabrics the world has to offer, but rather rare cast vinyl.
That fact made La Maistre perfect for the job. FotoLum’s proprietary photo luminescent vinyl is designed for tough durability and safety, not the elegant draping and shaping associated with high fashion design. Created from rare earth minerals combined through heat and pressure, the photo luminescent crystals possess a diamond-like hardness. In fact, Le Maistre commented that in creating this amazing fashion statement, he went through multiple pairs of $300 professional-grade sewing shears.
The FotoLum Jacket glows so brightly, this photo only required a one-second exposure. It glows after being exposed to light – natural or artificial and will NEVER lose it’s ability to charge up and glow.
Clearly, this creation – dubbed the Glow n’ Show Jacket is meant to be worn by an individual as unique as the jacket. And someone very well-off. Rumor has it that the bidding will start at $30,000 US! But the impact it will have when the owner struts into a night club or appears on-stage in a performance will be breathtaking. This jacket is a statement maker and there is only one of them in the entire world. La Maistre hasn’t disclosed the actual amount of time it took him to create his masterpiece, but experts speculate that it could have approached hours in the triple digits.
