In 2012, I volunteered along with other ASID North Chapter Interior Designers to design, create and implement a functional design for the Buyer’s lounge for the Phoenix Fashion Week to showcase the latest and greatest fashions of the year from the local fashion designers and up and coming designers.
The event was to take place at the Talking Stick Resort in a large open cathedral ceiling mezzanine and exterior courtyard where the runway was constructed. As a collaborative effort, we resourced local industry partners to sponsor furniture, furnishings, and materials needed to implement the design plan.
I performed the scaled CAD drawing. Several of us selected the furniture pieces and the colorful fabrics to make pillows, slip covers over cube ottomans and light weight vinyl fabric to print large scale banners representing several of the top local fashion designers to hang high on the columns. On some of the pillows, we screen printed some of the highlighted fashion designers fashions.
The event was splendid and euphoric. It was so exciting to work on this commercial interior design project with other local Interior Designers in a group effort.
