KMAC Couture selects established and emerging regional artists based on concept, durability, originality, and creativity. The fashion show and exhibit are a part of KMAC’s vision of community involvement in design and innovation.

The exhibit will be open through May 10, during which you can take a closer look at the pieces and the concepts and creative processes behind them. There’s a lot to see: KMAC Couture focused on pieces that were made with both traditional and non-traditional materials. The piece pictured above, created by Maui Crane and modeled by Gabby Sabad, is made with a lampshade, bamboo skewers, and a wooden fan, and is accented by couture accessories.

$8 General Admission, April 24–May 10, Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, 715 West Main St., Louisville, (502) 589-0102, kmacmuseum.org
