HWA brings home 2 awards from the IIDA Color+Couture Fashion Show

Hoefer Wysocki Architecture participated in the International Interior Design Association’s (IIDA) 2010 Color+Couture Fashion Show.  The competition consisted of 20 teams, and each team was assigned a material in which they had to use to construct their outfit.

The teams choose the decade they wanted to represent, as well as a model from their firm.  HWA was assigned plastic laminate and teamed with Wilsonart, who supplied the materials.  Sarah Boedeker was our model who pulled off our sixties-themed outfit with some sassiness and style.

Our team  received 2 awards – Integration of Finish + Fashion Award and the People’s Choice Award!  Amy Vittorino, Alicia Roberts, Sara Cramer and Kim Crane designed and constructed our award-winning outfit.  Great work ladies!
