Crossville, Tenn.—Crossville Inc., D&B Tile Distributors, and ID & Design International recently partnered to design and create a 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 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 event, the 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.
“With so much talent between ID & Design International and D&B, it’s not surprising they did such an amazing job using our porcelain tile and glass mosaics,” said Robert Sutnick, senior architectural representative for Crossville. “It’s really exciting to have landed a coveted award at the event.”
Proceeds from IIDA South Florida’s Design Mix go to support funding for interior design student awards and legislation advocacy efforts.
