About Fashion Show

Boston’s premiere unconventional materials fashion show came back for its 18th year! The New England Chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) presented its annual fashion show on Thursday, October 20th.

Each year two dozen of the region’s best interior design firms and design schools team up with industry manufacturers and battle it out on the runway in front of a capacity crowd at the BCEC ballroom.  Designers from each team don fashions that they’ve created exclusively from the tools of their trade –interior finishes, furnishings, light fixtures, etc. – and compete for cheers, awards and bragging rights.  It’s one of the most amazing displays of unbridled creativity in the city, an unforgettable experience, and one of the hardest tickets to come by as the show sells out every year.  This year’s show theme, Coutourism, provided promise that these unconventional works of fashion will take us to some amazing and unexpected destinations. It was an evening to remember!
