The 2011 IIDA MAC Designer Charity Event, Cosmo Couture, was held October 12th at the Artisphere in Rosslyn, Virginia. This fall’s event was a juried competition and charity benefit in which local design firms partner with industry manufacturers creating a high-fashion garment. Each firm toured DC and snapped a photograph of something DC related and used that image to inspire the design of their garment. The competition benefitted My Sister’s Place, Inc., the largest and oldest non-profit agency serving battered women and their children in the District of Columbia. At the full runway show, STUDIOS’ garment won the Audience Favorite Award! More importantly the designs raised thousands of dollars for a great cause. Congrats to the STUDIOS DC design team on their fabulous garment!
