Hot Couture 2015

This year’s theme: Air | Earth | Fire | Water

The Crucible
1260 7th Street, Oakland CA 94607
Showtime: 8:00 p.m.

Hot Couture celebrates the avant garde fusion of fire, fashion, industrial materials, and haute couture, sometimes with shocking results! For 2015 we asked designers for imaginative, new and well executed, wearable designs incorporating or inspired by the four elements: air, earth, fire and water.

We will present our unique flaming fashion show, featuring dazzling runway performances and special guests, on two different nights, Friday Jan. 9 and Saturday Jan. 10. Ten artists and designer teams will create thirty-eight haute couture concepts, illustrating the intersection between fashion, traditional materials, and fabrication during the evening.

General admission tickets are only $45 in advance, $60 at the door. All general admission tickets are for standing room only. Limited VIP tickets are available for both nights, for $115 in advance, $125 at the door (if available). VIP tickets include seats near the runway, complimentary beverages and hors d’oeuvres.

Additional discounts on GA and VIP seating is available for Crucible members. Email for more information about these member benefits.

Gypsy rockers Gogol Bordello donated the use of their song “Mishto” for our recap video of last year’s event. And we are very grateful.
