About The EventProduct 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.
