The Southwest Chapter of IIDA 2nd Annual COUTURE Event
The Southwest Chapter of IIDA is hosting the 2nd Annual COUTURE 2009 Event – a competition of unique fashions made of interior design materials designed by local architecture and interior design firms, benefiting The Wellness Community.
Thursday, February 12th
6:00pm – Cocktails
7:00pm – Fashion Show
The Phoenix Art Museum
1625 North Central Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona
Armed with the intention of blurring the line between fashion and interior design, 34 design teams representing local design firms have been assigned a specific color from Ultron’s 2009 Color Forecast palette and then matched up with various materials manufacturers who donated materials. The materials include wallcoverings, carpet and even tile. Each Design Team has had a month to create a complete outfit and choose a team member to model it at the COUTURE event. There are also 4 student design teams participating.
The panel of judges include representatives from Divaz Boutique, Avair Design and the Phoenix Art Museum. Prizes will be awarded for Best of Show (grand prize), Best Haute Couture (most fabulous), Best Prêt a Porter (ready-to-wear), Best Craftsmanship and Best Integration of Finish To Fashion.
Tickets are: $40 at the door. In advance: $35 for non-IIDA members, $25 for IIDA members and $15 for students.
