Product Runway

This last weekend I was involved in a fashion show with outfits made out of interior design materials...everything from stone to carpet to drapes. I was on a team with local design firm, Gensler. They were kind enough to ask me to join their team as a student. We made an Elizabeth inspired cape and coller out of Tandus carpet. The project was time consuming fun and worth it in the end. All of the outfits were amazing! So much work and detail put into it. Did I mention that my team was in the top 6 out of 20! We were happy with that.

Check out Tandus carpet. They are a great sustainable green company and product. http://www.tandus.com/.

Gensler outfit taking the top 6.

And the winner of the competition was this carpet dress.
