International interior design fashion show!

unique combinations of textiles and interior design materials took the stage in rare form on saturday night. fabric swatches, carpet remnants, and wall paper normally used for interior design projects walked the runway in garment form. uniquely designed and creatively assembled teams from the International Interior Design Association gathered to designed futuristic frocks. of all the events i have been asked to judge, each year this event tops the list.

{with the other judges}
giving a nod to florence knoll, who was the first to address the needs of commercial spaces came the inspiration for garment below. the design of this garment and use of textile textures in woven fabrics, this "iconic orange" frock was a sight to see.
right brian? left brain? the measure of a truly great designer is the ability to use and balance both sides of the brain. to creatively think of a design and to use logic and reason for assembly to insure practicality in function. this dress demonstrated how both sides of the brain must be balanced. one side of the dress was colorful and whimsical while the other classic and practical.

taking a twist on the word "bespoke" commonly used to describe made to measure by way of mens suiting this dress was custom draped and lazar cut in places to fit the model.

and, of course, love the exaggerated bow detail.
using a table leg as a staff and arm rest for a shield this modern warrior princess creatively combined elements of every day commercial design in a futurist manner. the strong liner lines of the skirt mimicked the theme.
madonna inspired details combined with unique accessories made this arc-con inspired entry another favorite. love this skirt... maybe she will donate it to my closet? love the tailored look with exaggerated ruffle hem.
another creative use of material. work binder, wall covering and tape turn into the modern briefcase. love that concept.
