Best of Show for Green Dress

IIDA “Unravel” Fashion Show Recognizes Elegant Design

Green design was reinterpreted in a stunning, though ephemeral dress fabricated from tropical foliage. The Christner design team, led by architect Emily Wray, won first prize in the fanciful St. Louis Chapter of International Interior Design Association’s “Unravel” competition. This is the second “Best of Show” accolade for Christner. You can catch a glimpse of the dress in a window display at 600 Washington Avenue, through Christmas.
