Members from the Coastal Empire City Center and the local designed community gathered at Brockington Hall Thursday night for Dressed in Savannah. The historic Italianate-style house, built in 1882, served as the perfect backdrop to showcase garments that were created for the Dressed runway show in Atlanta. Georgia Chapter President Cynthia Hovorka was on hand to welcome guests and announce upcoming IIDA Georgia events.
The reception was just the beginning of the garments being showcased in Savannah. The garments are currently displayed in the storefront of Mason, Inc. on Savannah’s Broughton Street.
About Dressed: The IIDA Dressed Fashion Runway event was established to promote the creativity of the Architectural and Design community by creating wearable fashion by using building materials and to raise funds for the IIDA Georgia Chapter along with one of our local Atlanta Charities. The intent of this event is to showcase the manufacturer’s products by creating fashion in a unique and creative way.
