Tonight is your last chance to check out the Crucible Hot Couture Fashion Show, celebrating their 14th anniversary. The show melds high fashion with industrial art and features world class fire demonstrations, aerial artistry and a blazing showcase of wearable art from Bay Area designers.
The show features creations from artists and fashion desighers producing over forty design conc epts that illustrat the intersection between fashion, traditional industrial materials and fabrication. Pieces will include a stained glass couture gown, custom corsetry embellished with interactive LED sensors and embedded 3D imagery, and warrior couture with welded steel and embossed leather.
The evening includes a special performance by Heather Katz on a fire-breathing violin constructed by Peter Kropf, accompanied by the dynamic aerial artistry of Rose Nisker.
If you aren't familiar with The Crucible, it is a nonprofit arts education facility serving more than 5,000 students through youth and adult arts education programs each year with a dedicates mission to the arts, industry and community. Through training in the fine and industrial arts, The Crudible promotes creative expression, reuse of materials, and innovative design, while serving as an accessible arts venue for the general public.
I have been attending Crucible events for years, and have had the pleasure of introducing many family and friends to their programs and events. I highly recommend taking classes and attending events at The Crucible. I have never been disappointed!
