Delawie Architects and Crossville Redefine “Tile Style”
We recently helped a talented team rock the runway in San Diego! As sponsor of the Delawie Architects team at the recent IIDA San Diego’s Haute Couture Fashion Show, we contributed stunning tile to craft album-art inspired style for a most unique fashion show.
The annual Haute Couture Show is a runway fashion event featuring one-of-a-kind garments created by design professionals using building materials. Esteemed design professionals from San Diego’s top A&D firms come together for a little friendly competition that culminates as models dressed in the amazingly designed and constructed garb strut their stuff on the runway! This year, the show’s theme married design, fashion, and the artistic side of music, as participants were challenged to create outfits inspired by iconic music album covers.
As sponsor of the Delawie Architects creation, we contributed a range of materials to carry out an interpretation of the art for the album Destroyer, by the band KISS. Using a combination of our Laminam Filo, Sideview Glass, and mosaic mesh backing, the Delawie team fashioned an outfit that mimicked the famous album’s strong black and white graphics, angular shapes, and vibrant backdrop. The rocking result was a stunning and sexy “gown” modeled by Delawie’s own Isidora Dragic who wore the dress, boots, and accessories with a palpable, rock-and-roll attitude.
Here’s the video of the event, courtesy of Delawie. (Be sure you are logged into Facebook to view it.)
