Chairing Styles is a unique collaboration of 30 students; 10 Textile Design, 10 Fashion Design and 10 Interior Design. The students are paired in teams of three to create a collaboration and an end product that is quite unique. A Textile Designer creates the textile. A Fashion Designer uses that textile to create a dress. An Interior Designer uses that same textile to design a chair.
Cotton Incorporated is a valuable supporter to this project and has made the Textile piece possible. "Se7en, LLC" a mill in North Carolina is also a partner, to manufacture the textiles used on the chairs.
This collaborative process is an opportunity for all three disciplines to actually see their visions come to life!
