Fashion, Interior Design + Art: The Creative Process of Cosmo Couture


Thursday, September 27

Free reception in gallery 31 from 5 - 8 p.m.

panel discussion begins at 7 p.m.

Pre-registration required

This panel discussion complements the exhibition Cosmo Couture in Gallery 31 (on view September 26–October 14) and the Cosmo Couture competition sponsored by the International Interior Design Association Mid-Atlantic Chapter. The panel will consist of representatives of the designers, manufacturers, and organizers of Cosmo Couture and the Corcoran Gallery of Art. For Cosmo Couture 2012, local architecture and interior design firms, and Corcoran interior design graduate students, join their talents with manufacturing partners to create garments made out of industry materials such as wood veneer, carpet, tile, and wall covering. This year’s designs were inspired by Red Star (1970) by Raymond Saunders, a painting in the Corcoran’s collection.

Tickets are available at a discounted rate for members of the International Interior Design Association and the American Society of Interior Designers.

Online registration for the panel discussion is now closed, but tickets will be available at the door to the auditorium. Please note that the reception in Gallery 31 is free and open to everyone.
