Care Instructions

Can I wash tech-fashion?

Short answer: yes. The products are designed with washing in consideration. Follow the instructions, just like how you'd do so for cleaning other types of clothing. 

The electronic components are made either removable or concealed, or the clothes itself only requires spot washing.

Think about normal clothes you are used to. They also require different kinds of washing - machine wash, hot/cold, hand wash, spot wash, dry wash, no need to wash, etc. Tech wearables do not add more complexity if user experience is already considered in the products. Think about how you'd care for a leather jacket or wool.

Even if the electronics are waterproof, the batteries should be removed. There may be more mechanical damages by the washing machine than water damage if instructions are not followed.

See example of how wearable electronics are made removable:


Is embedded electronics sold at Art by Physicist safe?

Yes. The electronics only use or produce 3-5V. They are safer than a phone, all things considered. 
For products that are not waterproof, do not wear them directly in the rain or completely soak in sweat, to avoid shorting and damaging the circuits. 
Do the colors on digitally printed fabrics wash off or go faint?
No. The colors are robust against extensive washing and sunburn.
How do I determine which size to order?
Please compare your measurements against the size chart. For made-to-measure items, your measurements will be collected after the order and we will make the clothing to your measurements. We simulate the digital outfit with your measurements in software and custom create the physical outfit for you.

First ever high-tech dress in life

First time to try Art By Physicist product Starry Night dress and Lotus collars, nice design of the dress, esp. the constellations on the fabric hand-painted by designer Kitty, which is very cool, so far I haven't found such a piece in China. When the lights on, bling bling, which is all my party dress looks like.

Wife loved it

Bought this dress as a gift for my wife and she loved it! Beautiful design, cool lights, and overall an excellent gift for my wife!

Yong Liu
Pretty dress and perfect gift for her

Very pretty and elegant dress, gorgeous and unique LED light design, fabulous fashion artwork, perfect gift for her.

City of Stars

This is the first time that I have engaged in the Kickstart campaign of an individual maker, and especially a female maker. The beauty and the fitness of the dress are more than I have anticipated. I really like the bowknots designed on the backside, they look lovely and elegant. Thanks!

Cutest design ever!!

This dress is definitely one of my favorite space items in my closet I’ve worn it to dinners, space events, brunch and ALWAYS get compliments on it, and then... BAM I turn on the mini LEDs in the dress!! Seriously such a statement piece!
