Fall Back Down the Rabbit Hole as Chelsea Rousso Once Again Brings Her Glass Fashions from Wonderland to the Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts
DANIA BEACH, FLORIDA — Many things in life seem impossible. One of those things being Chelsea Rousso bringing “Believe the Impossible: Glass Fashions in Wonderland” back for a second run after January’s sold-out show. But the Glass artist and fashion designer will present an encore and finale of her production on April 1, 2022, at the Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts (WMODA). As The Mad Hatter says, something is impossible “Only if you believe it is.”
Following the production’s first sellout show on January 22, Rousso will again present a wearable glass fashion show and unveil an underwater art series created in collaboration with Fort Lauderdale-based underwater photographer Suzanne Barton. An artist in residency at WMODA, Rousso’s glass clothing will tell the iconic tale of Alice via the runway as she arrives in Wonderland and encounters all the zany characters from Lewis Carroll’s novel, with fabrics donated by Jeffrey Michaels, Thibaut, and Valley Forge Fabrics Inc.
This time around, guests are invited to a pre-show cocktail reception beginning at 5 PM – don’t be late, or the Queen of Hearts might say “Off with your head!” After the runway show, which will begin at 6 PM, Wonderland’s finest, DJ Trace, will be spinning at the afterparty until 8 PM. Guests are invited to dress up in costumes inspired by their favorite characters – because hey, we’re all mad here! Don’t have anything to wear? Chelsea’s glass corsets, buckles, and jewelry will be available in the WMODA shop, so you can add some pizzazz in a pinch! There will be a silent auction with exclusive items like glass bikinis, bowties, and glass sculptures. Tickets to the fashion show are still available for $50.
Chelsea (Carol) Rousso was born in Lower Burrell, Pennsylvania then moved to New York, New York, and lives and works in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Florida. Rousso received a BFA from Pratt Institute in Fashion Design (1982) and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from Goddard College (2010). Rousso combines her love of fashion and fused glass into a unique form of wearable glass including corsets, masks, and swimwear called “glasskinis”. Learn more about Rousso by visiting her website.
