Institute of Design & Technology SD presents their annual Form + Fashion Meets Function event, featuring interior and fashion student portfolios (illustrative concepts) and their collaborative completed projects presented, blending the “function” of interior with the “form” of fashion.
Institute of Design & Technology SD (IDTSD) celebrates their 8th year bringing awareness to the collaboration and inspiration of both interior & fashion design, as this year will feature the textiles of Oscar de la Renta. The event will showcase the portfolios of the full-time students and projects of recent students attending IDTSD Project: Design Boot Camp, as the collections are quite impressive.
The Portfolio Show takes place Saturday, August 24th & 25th at the IDTSD Design Solutions Center, at Lewis Square, 2701 South Minnesota Avenue. The Open House will begin 4:00 pm on Friday for viewing student’s portfolios, followed by the Form + Fashion presentation at 5:00pm. And Saturday at 1:00pm, followed by the Form + Fashion presentation at 2:00pm
The event is free and attendees are encouraged to support the Silent Auction, as all proceeds from the auction supports funding programming for summer design camps and scholarship assistance for full time programs.
Project: Design Boot Camp was developed by Institute of Design & Technology SD to explore creative career options in design careers and creative in workforce development. IDTSD was an early pioneer in the development of project-based learning for creating thinking students preparing for design careers. Their summer boot camps are mentored by design professionals with real world experience that make their living in the graphic, interior and fashion design fields.
The Institute of Design & Technology of SD was honored with a Governor’s Vision Award (SD Economic Development) in 2010 for IDSTD entrepreneurial vision & programming.
Without the financial assistance of individual & corporate donors, SFAC and a Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation, the Institute would not exist or sustain funds needed to support summer design camp programs, art supplies and scholarship funding for the full-time design programs.
