Fashion and art come together in KMAC Couture X. Here’s what to know

Hundreds of finisher medals from past Kentucky Derby Festival mini marathons, bubble wrap sheets, coffee filters, gummy candies and yards of human hair. If you guessed the list constitutes a witch’s potion, sorry, not quite.

These unusual and incongruous materials were elements of the garments worn at KMAC Couture, a parade of wearable art held annually in Louisville.

This year, the innovative experience will take place on Saturday 16th April. Dozens of models wearing artwork will pass the runway as the show makes a triumphant homecoming under a huge tent set up in the middle of Main Street in downtown Louisville. In the midst of the pandemic 2020, the live catwalk event was replaced by “KMAC Couture: Star Stuff”, a documentary film.
