“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.”
The Crucible is bringing back Hot Couture: A Fusion of Fashion and Fire to celebrate our 14th year anniversary. Hot Couture's fashion show will display creations from fashion designers collaborating and producing industrial fashions in partnership with artists. Hot Couture will integrate bold design, visionary fashion, and accessories.
