There’s fashion, and then there’s fashion with code.

Last week, three Flatiron School Pre-College students attended a runway show in New York City with a twist — ZAC Zac Posen collaborated with Made With Code to show what can happen when fashion and technology mix. The result? A dress with twinkling LED lights coded by teenage girls, built to show the infinite possibilities computer science can open up for aspiring young women.

Girls from Flatiron School, and other organizations such as Black Girls Code, Girls Who Code, and Lower East Side Girls Club helped code the patterns that showed up in the LED lights, and Made With Code mentor Maddy Maxley fabricated the technology of the dress.
