Palm Desert Shopping - Fashion Week El Paseo 2009

Fashion and Home Design Worlds Meet at the ASID Project Runway Event – March 24, 2009.

The American Society of Interior Designers had the fashion and interior design glitterati of the valley cheering for their Project Runway event. Interior designers created fashions from home décor materials such as wood veneer, curtains, wallpaper, and even chairs. After the runway show, guests bid on the dresses in a spirited auction.
