Builders Design is thrilled to announce our participation in the IIDA Mid-Atlantic Chapter’s Washington Metro City Center Cosmo Couture 2014 fundraising event. “Cosmo Couture fosters a direct collaboration between local Architecture and Interior Design firms and their manufacturing partners in the Washington DC area, to create garments reflecting a given theme. The garments are judged during a runway show and awards are given to design teams in different categories.”

2014 Cosmo Couture Team

The event will be held on September 18, 2014 at the Artisphere in Arlington, Virginia. Our team is composed of a range of talents all working together to create a memorable fashion statement utilizing all the design principles we practice daily. We are energized by our partnership with Milliken for our Cosmo Couture outfit and the exciting challenge of creating an outfit from carpet and the components of the product. Our Couture outfit will be focused on drama paired with historical structure to create a runway show stopper! Follow our Facebook page for updates and the final product!

The event beneficiary for 2014 will be My Sister’s Place. “The IIDA Mid-Atlantic Chapter has donated over seventy-five thousand dollars to My Sister’s Place in DC over the past four years. Our success has been the direct result of the generosity of all those who have given their continued support to our events.”
