The 2nd Skin Exhibit opening night took place on 4/25/08 in San Francisco. The event is a celebration of clothing creativity.  Crave notes that, “[There was] a man wearing costumes covered head to toe in LEDs. Another man wearing a suit made of bubble wrap. A woman in a skirt made of Snickers wrappers. And a woman in a dress that generates power when she moves.”

The 2nd Skin Exhibit has a futuristic, sort of burlesque-like vision where the artists featured challenge the standard notions of practical clothing. Materials include everything from re-purposed goods to glowing electrical supplies from the hardware store.
