Orange County’s Icons of Rock

IIDA_OC_IconsofRock_01

Orange County’s 2018 Haute Couture Fashion Show electrified the night with an ‘Icons of Rock’ theme, stage, and musical setting. The show struck a chord this year, one who’s harmonic tendrils reverberated far past the Orange County lines, touching the sweet ears of our Long Beach and Inland Empire neighbors. Fifteen participants from each of these three areas came together to choose an icon and battle it out on stage in a show of timeless fashion. Each set was uniquely mind-blowing but, as always, there can only be a few winners.

Here are the photos and video from the event.

Our Award-Winning Icons…

San Diego’s 2017 Haute Couture Fashion Show

Broadway Takes The Catwalk was the theme for this year’s IIDA Haute Couture Fashion Show at the House of Blues on November 2nd. It was the biggest show yet with 17 professional A&D teams and 4 student teams crafting outfits inspired by famous musicals from the Broadway stage. These amazing outfits were made entirely from commercial interior design materials from each team’s sponsor or sponsors and the outcome was spectacular!

Click here to see photos from the event!

The models walked, danced, and even crawled down the runway to songs selected from each Broadway musical to show off not only their outfits but their stage presence. The judges had quite a difficult task and we were happy to welcome back five judges including Greg Bledsoe, morning news anchor for NBC 7/39; Laura Cain, radio personality from the Jeff and Jer Showgram; Sarah Kim, interior design instructor at SDSU; Natalia Worden, Design Program Director at Design Institute; Jennie Edwards, photography and video Rockstar along with author of Empowered You. We had one new judge, Alan Lopez, owner of Shore Total Office. Our teams competed for a total of six awards. Five awards were based on scores the teams received from our esteemed panel of judges and they include Best Haute Couture, Best Theme Inspiration, Best Craftsmanship, Best Showmanship, Best Student Ensemble. The People’s Choice Award was presented to the team with the most votes from the audience.
