Full Episode Summary

The founder and Chief Fashion Engineer of Enlighted Designs, Inc, she’s sewn her lifelong passions for fashion, art, and technology together into spectacular lighted costumery that’s illuminated performers like Daft Punk and shows like Dancing with the Stars. After learning to sew at age 7, Janet began installing miniature lights in her own dollhouse, and as her costume-making hobby bloomed, she began to incorporate more electronics into her fashion. While developing her artistic skills — she’s also a multimedia painter and sculptor — she studied engineering, and picked up a PhD in biomechanics. Today she is arguably the most prolific lighted clothing designer in the world.moreless
