Fashion Show 2017

The fashion show is back for its 19th year! The New England Chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) will be presenting its annual unconventional fashion show on October 12th.

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 Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Designers from each team don fashions that they’ve created exclusively from the tools of their trade – interior finishes, furnishings, light fixtures, and more! They 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, RITUAL, promises that these unconventional works of fashion will take your breathe away.
