How to Make a Suit Out of Glass-Bead Reflective Fabric / by Steven B. Wheeler

A short video I made that documents the design, pattern drafting, and construction that went into the world's first fully reflective suit! (Sorry, Pharrell, I finished this suit the Friday before you wore yours to the 2015 Grammys) Made from glass-bead reflective fabric similar to 3M Scotchlite, the suit combines old-world tailoring with high-tech materials. It was really fun project that I was able to completely dive into, and it took about 3 weeks from start to finish. I hope you enjoy it!

Finished editing this video for the Flashback Suit I designed and made for Betabrand as part of a collaboration with DJ Chris Holmes. The collection is now live in crowdfunding over at Betabrand.
