Once again IDTSD is hosting special guest design mentors from Project Runway. These guest designers will present their runway collections as the evening's grand finale; successful and popular designers from the most recent seasons are Season 12 finalist Helen Castillo, and Season 11 Winner Michelle Lesniak.

Through our connection with designer Diane Von Furstenberg and Kravet textiles, every one of our students is creating a project with one of her fabrics for the show, a once-in-a-lifetime collaborations not to be missed. Ms. Von Furstenberg is renowned for her colorful palette in fabric patterns and is celebrating the 40th anniversary of her iconic wrap dress.

The design students' portfolios will be on display all through the two-day expo. All proceeds from the event and silent auction supports programming for summer design camps, along with scholarship assistance for full time programs.
