Crossville-Sponsored Design Team Honored at Design Mix
Crossville, TN, April 25, 2018-Crossville Inc., D&B Tile Distributors, and ID & Design International recently partnered to design and create a stunning runway dress constructed of Crossville tile for the annual IIDA South Florida Design Mix.
The garment received the Best Use of Challenging Material Award at the event.
Design Mix is a fashion show that pairs industry members with design firms in a team effort to fabricate a one-of-a-kind, unique wearable garments made of sponsors’ products. Non-industry judges evaluate the garments and present awards in various categories.
For this year’s Casino Royale-themed Design Mix, the talented design team sponsored by Crossville and D&B devised a bedazzling Bond Girl garment fashioned from luminous tile and mosaics from a range of Crossville collections.
▪ A high-rimmed collar was constructed with metallic linear stripes comprised of Crossville’s gauged porcelain tile panels.
▪ Crossville’s Ebb & Flow glass mosaics were used to create a Bond Girl bodice and headpiece.
▪ The flowing train was handmade with metallic quatrefoil shaped waterjet-cut tile and sparkling crystals.
▪ Bejeweled wrist cuffs crafted from Crossville’s mirrored Sideview Glass tile.
Proceeds from IIDA South Florida’s Design Mix go to support funding for interior design student awards and legislation advocacy efforts.
