The fashion show brings out the extreme in winter entertainment, which this year promises to be more extravagant and eclectic than ever.

Outfits from previous shows have included gladiators costumed in a kaleidoscope armor made from aluminum cans, dresses glittering with patterns made from smashed mirrors, and a “fur coat” made entirely from kids’ stuffed animals. This year’s fashion show theme is “Intergalactic” with each designer creating out of this world wearable art.
