Outfit/Kellnerin / Outfit of a waitress

I designed for the job as a waitress a multi-functional waitress clothing.The new outfit supports the communication between the guest and the waitress without having any misunderstandings.A horizontal digital illuminated letters line is placed over the chest.This technology is based on a known procedure to fit glowing threads in textile materials.The mobile, interchangeable letters is an enhancement which is still visionary.When the waitress is busy at the moment, you can read:“one minute please!” If the waitress is free to take new orders, the letters “Your order please!” appear.The taken orders appear then at her chest, including the price.
