The theme of this year’s IIDA Dallas Fashion Show was A Royal Affair. Each group was assigned a character and a team. Once the team was identified, we jumped into concept design. The team created a lot of concept photos and sketches. Once we had a solid concept, we engaged in several discussions paired with testing, to determine what would work for the actual construction.
We collaborated with Delta Millwork as our hard material and Shaw carpet as our soft material. The cape was made using a custom Shaw carpet pattern and then embellished with wooden shapes that we created in CAD and then CNC cut. The skirt was made out of the same materials.
The top is made in a macrame style using carpet yarns.
The Crown is made up of built up layers of wood, from Delta Millwork. The sword was based on a sketch and executed by Delta Millwork.
The award winning design.
