Color + Couture

I was one of the lucky 5 individuals asked to judge the 7th annual Color + Couture Fashion Show this past Friday, October 25th hosted by IIDA (International Interior Design Association). This creative gathering challenges design teams to create garments out of interior finish materials provided by national manufacturers.


As you’ll be able to see from my photos, it was a remarkable night. So much talent in one room


Kansas City’s Marching Cobras got the night off to a rousing start




Vinyl flooring, carpet yarn, wallpaper and metal light fixture elements were just a few of the materials used in these amazing gowns

It was so much fun witnessing this spectacle. I only hope that I get invited back next year
