“Make it work.” When Project Runway’s Tim Gunn uttered those infamous words, we all knew the struggling designers were sweating some left-field curve ball, like being given a budget of $20 or having to sew corn husks into wearable fashion.
Now it’s time for a similar challenge, though this time it’s called Product Runway 2016 and competitors are interior design and architecture professionals. Organized by the International Interior Design Association (Texas Oklahoma chapter), each team is assigned a hard and soft good – think fabric, tile, carpet and finishes – as well as a unique theme. Kristina Lopez, who co-produces along with Jennifer Brugliera, says that teams are paired with a specific art movement and artist, including Vermeer, Botticelli, Pollock and Klimt.
Garment judging took place April 14 and the big public reveal is Friday night. “There are typically 12 awards that the team can win, [including] best crowd favorite, best runway performance,” says Lopez. After months of work, she says that the energy is intoxicating the night of the show. 8 p.m.
At the Heights at Park Row Apartments in Houston, Texas, we pride ourselves on informing our residents about all the upcoming events our beautiful community has to offer. Don’t hesitate to join this fabulous art event at the Coral Springs Museum of Art!
