The IIDA New England Fashion Show is back for its 20th year! Join us to witness over two dozen talented teams from our chapter battle it out on the runway in front of a captive live audience at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

Each year, New England's best interior design firms and design schools team up with industry manufacturers to create and model one-of-a-kind fashions exclusively fabricated from tools of their trade - carpet, wall coverings, tile, lighting and more! They compete for cheers, awards and bragging rights. It's one of the most amazing displays of creativity in the city, an unforgettable experience, and one of the hardest tickets to come by. Fashion Show 2017 sold out in a mere couple weeks! This year's show theme, "Reflection" promises to have veteran Fashion Show goers feeling nostalgic, and first-time guests marking their calendars for 2019!

We also held our first ever theme reveal party in May! Click here to view pictures from that event, attendees and much more!

Why the extra $2?

One Bill at a Time is a campaign to raise awareness and resources for Interior Design Advocacy in the New England Region.  By adding two dollars to each event hosted by IIDA NE, we remind ourselves that advancing our profession is the core mission of our Organizations and, with small individual contributions throughout our community, we can make a large impact*.

*At the conclusion of each calendar year, all funds raised will be distributed to New England states with active advocacy initiatives in direct proportion to the percent of Chapter membership residing in each state. 

We dedicate this campaign to the individuals that achieved interior design legislation in New England states and paved the way for the future of our profession, One Bill at a Time.
