Interior Design Students Place First in Haute Couture Fashion Show

The International Interior Design Association Haute Couture Fashion Show put interior designer students’ fashion skills to the test. Contestants were challenged to create costumes using only interior design materials with the theme “Give my regards to Broadway.”

On April 2, the night of the event, the students were allowed to bring a small box of accessories but only had 45 minutes to select their materials and make their costumes. The team had to write a script describing their costumes and the materials used and set their show to music.

Interior Design instructor Sonin Lee teamed up with students Annie Harrison, Edgar Marin, Carly Murphy and Erynn Vogel. They decided to do a Broadway revue instead of a single show. The team won first place by recreating the Phantom of the Opera, Tracy from “Hairspray” (her plaid skirt was woven from paint samples), Grizzabella from “Cats,” Roxy Hart from “Chicago” and Audrey II, the carnivorous plant from “Little Shop of Horrors.”
The script and trophy are in the display case in the atrium of building A.
