Hot Couture breathes fire into 2014 with new staging, effects, and runways, and the first-ever public viewings of one-of-a-kind pieces from new and returning designers.
This is one of The Crucible's most popular productions every year. In the leadup to the event fashion designers and industrial artists have been collaborating to bridge the two disciplines and bring you cutting edge looks, fresh concepts, and a stunning setting.
