Cosmo Couture 2013
Cosmo Couture is a charity fashion show benefiting My Sister's Place hosted by the Washington Metro City Center of IIDA-MAC. Architecture and interior design firms join with manufacturing partners to create garments made out of industry materials reflecting a given theme. The design teams have two months to create a garment from concept to construction. The garments are judged by a panel of DC notables during a runway show with awards given to design teams in 4 different categories: Haute Couture, Best Performance, Most Creative, and Audience Favorite. Each team’s finished design is showcased at the Cosmo Couture runway event at Artisphere, as one of the team members has to model the garment on the runway.
This year’s theme was inspired by birds from The National Zoo’s current exhibits and our bird was the Wattled Crane.
