" e collaboration of design rms and vendor products into wearable fashion design is truly amazing," said Joyce Blatt, IIDA New England Executive Director.

All materials came from Knoll textiles and all sewing and construction was completed by both ADD Inc. and Knoll. eir team portrayed the show's theme with inspiration from nature, technology, and culture and worldly ideas. " e team work for each piece, and as a uni ed entry, was astounding and the energy and excitement for the event began over owing around the o ce," she said. Michelle worked with the 'nature' concept. And when she took the runway, she wore a vibrant ensemble, resembling a large, luxurious callalily. e ADD Inc./Knoll team won the award for "Best Use of Materials."
