On Thursday, Nov 2, the Mesa Interior Design Club participated in the annual International
Interior Design Association’s (IIDA) Haute Couture Fashion Show at the House of Blues
in San Diego and received two awards. The theme of this year’s runway show was “Broadway
Takes The Catwalk”.
Mesa Interior Design students received awards for “Best Student Ensemble” and “People’s
Choice”. The first part of the challenge was a “Fabric Grab” event in September where
the team collected fabric to use for the fashion show; the second part was using the
fabric along with materials provided by their assigned sponsor to create a garment
that represented a famous musical. Over 20 leading professional design firms and design
schools took part in this show.
Mesa’s team was assigned Les Miserables for their musical and Mayer fabrics as their
sponsor for materials. The Mesa Interior Design Club team included Sarah Correa as
the project manager and headpiece artisan, Esteffany Inzunza as the art director,
model and skirt designer. Angelica Cagley served as the vest crafter, with Rachel
Barroga as the off-shoulder sleeves and belt embroidery couturier, Sambath Prom-Chiem
as the bustle artisan and producer, Nacia Grey as the chain assembler, Crystal Payer
as the boot top tailoress, and Emily Galvin as the cape seamstress.
