Cocktails and Hors d’oeuvres
Festive attire

Enter the fantastical world created by fashion alchemist Iris van Herpen, the international design sensation who is fusing the highest caliber of couture handicraft with cutting edge technology. Her creations are constructed of the wildest of materials - crystals, silicone, glass bubbles, magnets, umbrella tines, metal gauze and more.

It’s modern couture as living sculpture, and you've never, ever seen anything like it.

Join us for an unparalleled event in Pittsburgh, HAUTE WIRED, an evening of cocktails and dinner amidst Iris van Herpen’s stunning collection of garments, and be sure to wear YOUR work of art.
