I have participated in a fun and charitable event called Designer Runway at the Laguna Design Center for the past four years. My fifth year of Designer Runway marks an exciting time for Sérendipité as we have been honored with the prestigious invitation to host our very own team!
Designer Runway is an exciting runway event that has been hosted at the Laguna Design Center for the past 8 years benefiting various charities in Orange County. The event entails 12 design teams, each team consisting of four members (either interior designers and/or industry partners) and one of the team members is the runway model. The goal of the team is to create a couture outfit ready for the runway. However, there is a twist, each team must complete their couture outfit in only 90 minutes, utilizing all 7 yards of various upholstery fabric given to them. We do not get to choose or see the fabric we have to work with until the clock starts and no sewing machines are allowed.
Our design team this year consists of, Jan Turcotte, Sarah Strader and Cheryl Thoreen. Our team has been hard at work, we have our concept and we are ready to create an amazing couture outfit to walk the runway.
The event takes place the evening of October 2nd, 2014 and tickets are selling fast so if you are thinking of attending please see the attached link to purchase tickets. As a guest at the event you will have the opportunity to walk through the different showrooms at the design center and witness each team preparing and creating their couture outfits. The runway show will proceed the 90 minute prep-time.
We hope to see you all there!
