IIDA Product Runway 2018
This industry staple event lets designers get creative (and competitive) as they craft costumes out of architectural materials.
We love this event! It’s a night where music and fashion join the architecture & design industry, and it’s so much fun. Every firm teams up with a product vendor to create a runway ready outfit. This year, WSA teamed up with Burch Fabrics to create an objectively beautiful garment and our first-time model, Ashley, strutted down the catwalk bopping and swaying to Shakira’s “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa).” The overall theme of the night was Express Your Wild Side, intending to produce animal-like costumes from various climates. We drew Desert Dwellers and a lot of inspiration came from dragonesque reptiles that dwell in… the desert.
WSA walked away with an award for the best poster to memorialize the night and, if there were an award for having the most fun, we would have gone home with that one too.
