Merge 2022

Design firms from the Sacramento area compete to create stunning fashions out of architectural materials in an over-the-top fashion show, this year at the Sacramento Zoo.

All proceeds benefit the IIDA Sacramento Student Design Award. Thais’ company, LPAS, participated and I was on their team. Unfortunately, Thais couldn’t attend, but she did get me an extra ticket. The venue on a perfect fall evening with various animals making noises in the background:

One of my neighbors and friend I met through bicycling, Terri, came with me. We found a bench in a shady spot and claimed it. A perfect place to watch everyone check out the table with the design boards.

The LPAS design board:

Along came Marcie — I think she was the master designer and executor of the LPAS entry. Lots of people had input and prepared materials, but Marcie made it happen — and Sedonah, our model.

Marcie’s mother, Terri, joined us:

Terri, me, Terri

LPAS won the category of Most Wearable:

The winner from HY:

Such a fun event.
