Haunt Couture 2013 Team Kick-Off Event Is A Huge Success at Tangram Studios DTLA

Haunt Couture 2013 Design Teams, Sponsors and Committee

Ten Design Teams and Two Student Design Teams crowded into the new Tangram Studios DTLA on September 16th for cocktails and appetizers to officially kick-off the event and introduce the design teams competing in Haunt Couture on October 30 at LA/Exchange.  This year’s narrative theme is “GRAND PRIZE:  Come on Down!” taking its cues from a classic television game show.  Each of the teams drew individual “grand prize” that one might find on a game show.  The teams will design their
runway fashions based on their inspiration from the 20th Century design icons that were also “game changers” in its own right.  If the level of excitement and intensity of competition already felt at the kick-off event is any indication, this year’s Haunt Couture may prove to be the best Haunt yet!
