On the Catwalk

The Pennsylvania/New Jersey/Delaware Chapter of IIDA hosted its second annual IIDA Fashion meets Finish gala at the New Jersey City Center on June 6. Shaw Contract Group and Shaw Commercial Hard Surface sponsored the event, where design teams create wearable art constructed from materials provided by the sponsoring manufacturer. Each team modeled its wearable garment on the red carpet (which is Shaw Contract Group’s DyeLab in cochineal if you haven’t spotted it already). A lighthearted competition, the winner receives 12 months of bragging rights. Event proceeds support New Jersey’s interior design student community.
