The IIDA New England Fashion Show is back for its 21st year! Join us to witness over two dozen talented teams from our chapter battle it out on the runway in front of full house and a livestream 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, wallcoverings, tile, lighting and more! They compete for cheers, awards and bragging rights. It is one of the most amazing displays of creativity in the city, an unforgettable experience, and one of the hardest tickets to come by. This year, we are shaking things up as we embark on the third decade of IIDA NE Fashion Show. The theme of the show is “Portals” and each entry has been challenged with interpreting a mythical, fantasy world that has been assigned to them by the Fashion Show Committee. It’s sure to be an unforgettable and magical evening that will leave guests eager to return next year!
