Object Runway 2014

Thursday night was the fifth annual Object Runway show here in Anchorage, Alaska. It is an amazing spectacle of performance, art, and fashion. Every year, the artists push the previous year’s boundaries. You just don’t know what will happen next.

There was fish skin and human skin.
