Interior Design combined with Fashion Design is center stage as the Interior Design industry supports Rebecca Robeson as she hosts DESIGNER RUNWAY a fund raising event in Orange County California. Highly acclaimed fashion designer Sue Wong, shows her timeless and romantic collection of exquisite dresses along with Jewelry designer Joe Polthakorn of Vilaiwan Fine Jewelry.
Part 2 of this annual event, Designer Runway, is the Interior Design portion where 12 Interior Design firms step out of their traditional roles and use their design skills to create a high fashion, runway worthy outfit, in a limited amount of time. Each team is awarded a group of upholstery weight fabrics. They are allowed to use pins, duck tape, hot glue, bungie cords and such to create their garments but are forbidden to use any kind of thread or sewing materials. In 90 minutes, these creative individuals pull off a fashion miracle entertaining the audience with their beautiful, eccentric and sometimes bazaar creations. A good time is had by all in this highly enjoyed annual event.
Congratulations to REJOY INTERIORS, WINNER OF THIS EVENT.
