Marl LEDs take to the catwalk

Couture Clubbing, an exquisite clothing design company for high-end events, lit up their unique Heavenly Order dress design with LEDs from Marl International and showcased alongside other 'dresses of light' to celebrate the fusion of light and fashion.

Arrays of dazzling and prestigious garments designed by Amy Winters and Kseniya Zagorodnyuk were on show for the launch of their new company, Couture Clubbing. One of these included a unique helix shaped band wrapped around one of the models which was illuminated with Marl LEDs.

"We were delighted with the striking effects that the LEDs created, they provided a much stronger and brighter colour than previous options we'd tried," said Amy Winters, Creative Director of Couture Clubbing. "All of the outfits created for this event were themed around the concept of 'Paradise Lost' and tell a unique story. The helix shaped 'Heavenly Order' represented the solar system so it had to be very bright and striking, which we achieved thanks to Marl's LEDs."

Adrian Rawlinson, managing director of Marl International commented, "We are very pleased to have been approached for inclusion at such an important event and were amazed by the stunning effects that were created by Couture Clubbing. LEDs are becoming more and more popular in many varying sectors due to the high quality illumination produced and their longevity, yet they are still lower in energy consumption than other available lighting options."
