Pairing the spectacles of fire and fashion, Oakland's edgy industrial-art space the Crucible brings new meaning to the words "hot" and "haute" for its 14th birthday party. A fire-breathing violin and an aerial performance provide a provocative backdrop while thirteen Bay Area designers bring dozens of wearable artworks to a fiery catwalk — including a stained glass haute couture gown — and artisans demonstrate welding, blacksmithing, and glass blowing. VIP tickets up the ante with hors d'oeuvres, champagne, and a special view of the runway.
