Gaudi Goddess – Every two years, local designers and architects along the Wasatch Front roll up their sleeves and pull out their glue guns to compete in Fashion Remix, IIDA Intermountain Chapter’s unconventional material’s challenge. Each team is paired with a vendor to create wearable fashion made from interior materials. Vendors range from flooring to furniture, with prizes given in a variety of categories including most innovative use of materials and best in show. This year, teams were given an added challenge with the addition of a theme to this year’s event – Haute Couture inspired by Iconic Designers & Architects.
Each year amazing fashions are created from carpet tile menswear to ball gowns made from wallcovering. We are excited to be partnered with Daltile this year, the industry leader in natural stone, porcelain and ceramic tile.
MHTN’s team of architects and interior designers is drawing inspiration Antoni Gaudi’s naturalist period, looking to his organic patterns and colors, curves and arcs, crushed tile, and use of light for design ideas. MHTN’s dress will combine a visible structure and framework reminiscent of Gaudi’s Casa Batlló made from metal tiles and crack isolation membrane. Additional embellishments of hand cut Byzantine tiles in organic patterns will adorn the skirt, belt and cuffs. MHTN’s own Tammy Munson will be rocking the runway as the Gaudi Goddess this October.
Proceeds benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and IIDA Intermountain Advocacy.
