Tranceflora—Amy's Glowing Silk

We collaborated with NIAS (National Institute of Agricultural Science) to genetically engineer silkworms to develop new kinds of silk for future fashion. For an exhibition at Tokyo's Gucci Gallery, we designed a Nishijin-Kimono dress, working with NIAS's glowing silk (created by injecting the genes of a glowing coral and jellyfish into silkworm eggs) .
