Everybody loves a hero, but no one forgets a villain. All kinds of evil dazzled the runway for IIDA's 16th annual Haute Couture Fashion Show, but Ursula's dark magic stole the show.

This year's theme was "Villains", which did not disappoint. Using a similar setup to the TV show Project Runway, Interior design and architecture firms, independent designers and students were given one hour to create a villain using finishes and materials utilized for interior design. The hustle was fun, fast, and crazy as teams scrambled and successfully created intricate costumes inspired by everyone's favorite villains.

Westgroup Designs built four costumes from The Little Mermaid. Ursula, her two eel minions, and the little mermaid made memorable appearances on stage, with Ursula and her dark magic captivating the crowd.

A huge thank you to our sponsors, Mohawk Group and Daltile for helping make this vision happen!
