14 professional design teams and 4 students worked hard to design pieces for this year's magical fairy-tale themed IIDA Haunt Couture fashion show, which took place in LA on October 22nd. 

The annual event fuses fashion and design and is a spectacular evening of cocktails, dancing and networking, with a runway show by leading Los Angeles design firms and student teams. Each design team drew a fairy tale that served as inspiration for their individual costumes and had 6 weeks to design and construct their cutting-edge fashions and execute their runway performance. We donated our Shisha and Fringe Benefits fabrics and look what the team at Perkins + Will came up with!

A special thanks for our Los Angeles rep Doug Skoglin for capturing these photos!

House Beautiful's October Instant Room (page 76) features the rendering of a cozy study by designer Jay Jeffers. Jeffers chose our Lambswool Plaid in menswear for his swivel chairs. Don't you just want to snuggle up with some tea and a good book?
