Circus Couture presents “Possession(s)”, a unique and extravagant performance, fashion, and art event inside The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8. Benefitting the Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada, Nevada’s only nonprofit outpatient clinic treating kids with cancer regardless of insurance, Circus Couture has been praised by the Las Vegas Review- Journal as “one of the hippest and most entertaining charity nights of the year.”

Now in its fourth year, Circus Couture was born with inspiration from performers and employees of shows on the Las Vegas Strip and has grown to include talents from Las Vegas’ most revered fine artists and community leaders. The event features both a silent and live art auction paired with a breathtaking circus spectacle featuring sensational runway fashion. Circus Couture “Possession(s)” was inspired by the idea that a stranger may define us by our physical possessions, but we are most accurately defined by what possesses us and drives our hearts and minds.
“From the outside, Las Vegas appears to be a land of glitter and flash, but this community is so much deeper than that,” says Erica Linz, President of Circus Couture and star of the film Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D. “There is a kinship between those who make this the “Entertainment Capital of the World” and the innovators that give their all to make Las Vegas a place where kids are assured a healthy future. It is an amazing thing to witness when those passions collide.” With their sister fundraising team Cirque du SoBald, Circus Couture has raised well over a quarter million dollars for pediatric cancer care and research.
