Dressed has become one of the IIDA Georgia Chapter’s largest annual events. The event gives Atlanta designers a unique opportunity to partner with architectural and design (A&D) industry manufacturers to create one of a kind, wearable garments out of non-traditional materials for a runway extravaganza like you have never seen.
Teams of 2-5 designers are challenged to construct a highly unique garment made almost entirely from their sponsoring manufacturer’s products including: wallcoverings, flooring materials, deconstructed contract furniture, paint and more. The sky's the limit as these designers test their imagination to create articles of clothing from materials traditionally used to create buildings.
Once again the Tabernacle will act as the backdrop for Dressed. The stunning venue in downtown Atlanta will transform, and lend itself to create the blank pages for Dressed 2018, Thursday, September 20th from 6pm-11pm.
Our mission for Dressed is to give designers a unique opportunity to unleash their creativity, while promoting the IIDA Georgia Chapter and our industry partners and manufacturers at a runway extravaganza like no other. Teams have the opportunity to connect with the Atlanta architectural and design (A&D) industry in a creative and “out-of-the-box” format, working together to create one of a kind, wearable garments, made almost entirely from their sponsoring manufacturer's products. As in years past, a portion of the ticket sales from the event are donated to Dress for Success Atlanta. For more information on this information, visit www.dressforsuccess.org.
