WATER PROOF is an unconventional runway presentation combining fashion, music, visual and digital art. The artists showcased in this event represent a spectrum of queer and femme artists based mostly in Miami, Florida. Garments presented in WATER PROOF will be fabricated out of clear/glossy/vinyl materials to tie in with the theme. All models will submerge themselves throughout the presentation in our installation, a plexiglass LED incubation tank. These garments will be designed by local stylist and designer NIVERO. The presentation will also feature an exclusive musical collaboration by experimental artists JuJu Pie(Producer, Singer, Writer) and Exit Sense (DJ, Visual Artist, Producer), both from Miami . Projections will be rendered in 3D by Valy CG.
