IIDA Houston City Center’s Product Runway benefitting the Houston Furniture Bank commenced Friday April 22nd at Revention Music Center and Horizon was VERY well represented by a fantastic team of designers from PDR
Teams were revealed February 11th where designers from PDR were assigned the theme Cubism/Picasso for the Avant Art Fashion Show.
About The Event: Product Runway is an avant-garde couture fashion design competition influenced by the concept of the hit realty TV show Project Runway. Teams of interior design and architecture professionals participate in a fashion design competition creating handmade garments out of standard architectural finish materials such as glass, tile, carpet and wood.
Requirements: Each of the 20 competing teams has been assigned one hard material and one soft material, which must collectively make up 80% of their final garment. With this year’s theme: Avant Art, each team will be assigned a specific art movement with a correlating artist, as well as a piece of work from their artist that shows a true representation of that particular movement. The majority of a completed garment (approx. 60%) must be made of their hard and soft goods that are as close to the team’s assigned art movement and artist.
