IIDA Dallas Fort Worth City Center presents the 5th CRE8 Design Challenge and Fashion Show benefiting The Gatehouse in Grapevine, Texas. The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) is a professional networking and educational association committed to enhancing the quality of life through excellence in Interior Design. The mission of The Gatehouse is to provide safe refuge for women and children in our community. This community creates the environment for women and children in crisis to walk the path toward permanent change.

The challenge is to create a garment in 8 days. Not just any garment, but a garment that celebrates the connection between interior design and fashion! This year’s theme is Circus. Each Circus Character has a unique talent that sets it apart from the rest. The question is who possesses the greatest talent? We cordially invite you to find out on April 28th, 2017. Welcome to the Circus.

Based on order of registration, Design Teams will select a Circus Character that will be randomly paired with their Garment Underwriters – 1 soft good and 1 hard good manufacturer. They will work together to create a couture garment out of products like carpet, tile, and wallcovering!

All garments will be constructed in 8 days and showcased at the CRE8 Fashion Show on Friday, April 28, 2017.

Make it work, and we’ll see you on the runway!
