CBT Wins Best Red Carpet Look at 2017 IIDA New England Fashion Show

CBT was among 25 teams to participate in the 2017 IIDA New England Fashion Show on Thursday, October 12, 2017. With approximately 1,800 guests at the event and an additional 3,000 online viewers, the show was a dazzling display of spectacular wearable runway fashion, made from materials used in the architecture and interior design profession.

The theme of this year’s show was RITUAL and CBT’s entry “Back to Black” was an interpretation of taking common rituals of modern society and stripping them back to their true, authentic meanings. Through partnership with Wolf Gordon, WS Tyler, and Skanska CBT designed and constructed three spectacular ensembles primarily made of cork veneer, architectural metal mesh, stainless steel cable, sheer drapery, and mica wallcovering. CBT was proud to take home the award for “Best Red Carpet Look” which recognizes the most "red carpet-ready" collection.
