In celebration of its 14th Anniversary, The Crucible, Oakland’s premier industrial arts space, is excited to present “Hot Couture: A Fusion of Fashion and Fire.” Melding high fashion with industrial art, “Hot Couture” features fire demonstrations, aerial artistry, and a blazing showcase of wearable art from Bay Area designers. The event, which supports The Crucible’s educational initiatives, will take place on January 11-12, 2013.
Hot Couture features thirteen local artist-designer teams, showcasing dozens of innovative couture concepts. Select designs include stained glass couture gowns, custom corsetry embellished with interactive LED sensors and 3D imagery, and warrior couture with welded steel and embossed leather. The evening also features a special performance on a fire-breathing violin; dynamic aerial artistry; and demonstrations in welding, blacksmithing, glass blowing, and other fire arts.
Set to a backdrop of metal and fire, Hot Couture promises to ignite West Oakland with imagination, creation, and inspiration. With a unique collaboration in store, and an opportunity to support local arts initiatives, Hot Couture may be one of The Crucible’s most engaging and rewarding experiences yet.
Come join the fun!
