On October 19, IIDA (International Interior Design Association) held the 6th biennial Product Runway Style fashion show in Louisville, KY at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage.
Garments fashioned from Interior Design products were modeled by professionals and students from the four universites in Kentucky with Interior Design programs; Western Kentucky University, University of Louisville, University of Kentucky and Sullivan University.
WKU's Interior Design program entry was sponsored by J & J Carpet. J & J provided materials for our group to design with. S...enior Interior Design students: Anna Berger, Rachel Hitch, Cally Hinkle and Jordan McRoberts put in over 50 hours designing and constructing the garment out of carpet backing, carpet tiles and carpet fibers.
There were 17 entries using various architectural styles. The WKU team was assigned the architectural style "Futurism" with the design element of shape. They based their design on the triangular shape which symbolizes dreams and ambitions.
IIDA sponsors this function as a fund raiser and this year's funds being raised will go to the Interior Design programs at the four universities in Kentucky.
