IIDA’s Cosmo Couture Event
Look out for RTKL Baltimore & Bentley Prince Street on the runway at IIDA’s Cosmo Couture event on October 12. This event will be a juried competition and charity benefit in which local design firms partner with industry manufacturers creating high fashion. Each firm will tour DC and snap a photograph of something DC related and use that image to inspire the design of their garment. The work of the participating firms will be showcased during a full runway show at the Artisphere in Rosslyn, Virginia. Get your tickets soon before they sell out!
NeoCon East Wraps Up
NeoCon East was a big box-office draw: 250 exhibitors, 30 educational programs, and hundreds of new products aimed at one of the largest clients anywhere, but especially in the metro DC market—the federal government. How large? The organizers say the government will spend $1.6 billion on interiors this year, to make them more efficient and healthier.
While there, we checked out Bentley Prince Street’s new lines, Hollywood Story and Domestic Alchemy. Hollywood Story shimmers with extra hints of color that add depth and texture, in tones that set a classic scene for high-level corporate spaces.
Bentley Prince Street’s display also featured the Tucson collection. Best of all, they introduced new carpet tile sizes: 3’x3′ and 18″x36” in addition to their standard 2’x2′ size.
