Electric City Couture Launches 2015 Season
with 'Queen of Serpents' Exhibition
The 2015 Season will kicked off early with the opening of a fashion installation in Cohoes, New York at The Foundry for Art Design + Culture on November 1, 2014 by ECC Designer Vilma Mare. Mare will be exploring contemporary culture through an installation involving a symbolic ceremony that recreates a time of connection and cleansing. Egle, the 'Queen of Serpents' is a feminine image with hereditary connection to indigenous rites, worship of ancestral land and family values, and harmonious dialogue between Humankind and Nature. This story depicts an ancient ritual understood from a female perspective whereby Egle takes a central role as she becomes a mediator between "sacral" and "secular" spheres.

"The 2015 season will see new developments in the way we represent and promote designers and elements of the regional fashion economy.

Corey Aldrich : Founder and Producer at Electric City Couture

Last years show was such an amazing success! 2014 saw the establishment of a new program for our participating designers, the 'POP UP! Shop.' This provided 3 seperate days of opportunity for the designers to sell directly to the public. Especially popular was the availability of the shop immediately after the runway show. The 'buy it off the runway' component was very popular and the shop was mobbed!
