Engineering elegance - manufacturing
Kate Bellingham set a challenge for design and technology students to design a dress using e-textiles, to wear as she hosts a prestigious awards ceremony at the Globe Theatre in London. This Teachers TV video shows the winner of the challenge as her designs become reality. Abigail, an A-level product and design student, meets with Kate and the fashion company who will be making the dress to discuss her design further. The group looks at how it can be turned into a wearable and functional dress. They pay particular attention to the materials, the electronic components, such as LEDs, fibre optics and circuitry and the cost.
