Aurora LED Dress

I've always been a fan of high-tech couture.   A London-based atelier has sent me a gorgeous, silk-chiffon outfit called an Aurora LED dress, which I'm wearing tonight, just after darkness falls for maximum effect.

Studded with hundreds of Swarovski crystals and over 10,000 embroidered LEDs, the dress is sure to wow the assembled entourage of over 500.

The overall effect brings to mind the Aurora Borealis phenomenon, or Northern Lights; Aurora was the Roman goddess of dawn, who took flight each morning to herald the arrival of the sun.  The only snag is that the LEDs on the dress are powered by mains electricity, so I must always ensure no-one trips on the flex and pulls the plug out of the mains, and that there isn't a power cut (which is highly likely in this rural part of Buckinghamshire).
