W+P’s Robi Kaseman Judges IIDA Couture Competition

MERGE 2012 : Interior Design Meets the Runway
Robi Kaseman, Associate Principal at W+P and Past President of IIDA Northern California Chapter, served as a Judge at last month’s IIDA Sacramento City Center Second Annual MERGE event.

"It was a pleasure to be invited to judge the MERGE 2012 event," she said.

The event was held on Saturday, Oct. 27th, at The Crest Theater in Downtown Sacramento. The evening was fast, furious, and filled with inspirational designs assembled by some of the region’s most talented interior designers. Teams of professionals, students and interns repurposed interior design materials to fabricate haute couture in just 2-1/2 hours. The result was seven amazing fashion designs that rocked the runway.

"Not only were the designs creative, but many of them were surprisingly very wearable," Kaseman explained. "The hardest part about judging was having to select only three winners. To me, they were all winners. I was really proud and impressed with the incredible design talent we have in our area." 
To top things off, the event was a fundraiser for a great cause. MERGE is IIDA Sacramento City Center’s major fundraiser for the organization’s annual Student Design Award.
