Last year world-famous blogger Garance Doré came to Chicago to receive the first Fashion Inspiration Award by the Museum of Science and Industry - presented with "cutting-edge wearable technology curated from around the world," including the Galaxy Dress, a CuteCircuit creation composed of 24,000 tiny full-color pixels. See my whole Reader coverage here, including a few of her most memorable quotes during her Soho House talk.
