Zac Posen, Gabby Douglas, Sophia Amoruso and More Use Code to Say What Love Means to Them for Valentine's Day
Use code to design a 3D, animated heart as part of Google's Made with Code initiative
Love just got a high-tech upgrade.
Celebrities have gotten in on the fun, too: Designers Zac Posen and Rachel Roy, longtime Project Runway judge and Marie Claire creative director Nina Garcia, Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas, NastyGal founder Sophia Amoruso, Teen Wolf actress Holland Roden and YouTube star Ingrid Nilsen all shared their own unique hearts on Twitter.
Posen is no stranger to using code to design beautiful things – he teamed up with Google in 2015 to design a light-up dress for his Spring-Summer 2016 collection. Coco Rocha wore the LED-studded dress on the runway in September and Lupita Nyong’o wore it to the Star Wars: Force 4 Fashion event in December.
“This is the future of the industry: mixing craft, fashion and technology,” Posen told PEOPLE after the dress’ debut. “There’s a discrepancy in the coding field, hardly any women are at the forefront, and that’s a real shame. If we can entice young women through the allure of fashion, to get them learning this language, why not?”
Made with Code seeks to encourage more young women to pursue careers in tech coding by showing how code can be used in fashion, movies, medicine and more.
