We had the honor of sponsoring the International Interior Design Association – Southwest Chapter’s Annual Couture Event two weeks ago in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was a night full of inspiring people and beautiful design at the lovely Scottsdale Center of Performing Arts.
Architects and interior designers within the IIDA Southwest Chapter were randomly paired with a color or forecast theme and an industry manufacturer’s materials. They were asked to create and model a runway-ready fashion using only the color assigned and materials provided.
