The present invention provides a process for illuminating a garment (10) worn by an individual, which process comprises the following steps: (i) providing a garment (10) having an illumination system (20) comprising (a) an optical fibre member (210) holding fibre ends (212) of multiple optical fibres (211 ) attached to the garment (10); (b) a wearable control unit (220) comprising at least one light source (221 ) releasably attached to the optical fibre member (210), the control unit (220) further comprising a data processor (222), and a wearable power source (223); (c) a distance sensor module; and (d) a motion sensor module; (ii) storing sensor data received from the distance sensor module and the motion sensor module, said sensor data representing context information of the garment (10); (iii) processing the sensor data so as to generate processed sensor data; (iv) mapping the processed sensor data to an individual state by using sensor data mapping rules; (v) mapping the individual state to a light output state by using individual state mapping rules; (vi) controlling the at least one light source depending on the light output state.
