Special event blends art, interior design, architecture

The American Society of Interior Designers/International Interior Design Association student chapter at University of Nevada, Las Vegas and the UNLV School of Architecture will host its second annual ARTchitecture event at Las Vegas Design Center today. The fashion, art and design exhibition will feature 12 mannequins dressed in fashions designed and created by students using interior design materials. A silent auction also will take place and benefit upcoming local high school graduates seeking to study interior design at the university.

“Last year’s event was a great success due to the inspiring creativity of the students reinterpreting design materials into wearable works of art,” said Jesse Meikle, chapter president. “We expect a bigger turn out of several hundred guests in attendance for this year’s event.”

Each fashion design is inspired by a piece of Las Vegas architecture, with much of the inspiration coming from Strip properties. Many showrooms at Las Vegas Design Center collaborate with the students by donating furniture and accessories for the silent auctions, as well as fabrics and materials for creating designs.

“We are proud to support future interior designers and help foster their growth. Students are an integral part of the interior design community, and this event allows them to showcase their creativity and encourages future interior designers,” said Cain Brodie, the design center’s brand manager.

The event will run from 6 to 8 p.m. in the lobby of Building A at Las Vegas Design Center, 495 S. Grand Central Parkway. It is open to the public, and cash donations to the scholarship program will be accepted. For more information and to RSVP, visit www.lvdesigncenter.com.
