IADT Sacramento Presents its Annual "Imagine Showcase"

April 15, 2010

Fashion show features top student designs

Sacramento, Calif. (April 15, 2010) – The International Academy of Design & Technology (IADT) Sacramento will present its annual IMAGINE Showcase entitled "REBELution" on Thursday, April 29, 2010 beginning at 6:00 p.m. at the California Automobile Museum.

This roaring 20s-themed event will feature fresh, new designs from 13 student fashion designers and will see displays from graphic and interior design students involved in a conference room redesign for Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California®. With all three of IADT's disciplines on display, the sheer glamour of the event is sure to be memorable for years to come.

The evening will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California,® a local charity dedicated to serving children who are being treated at nearby hospitals and medical facilities, and their families. The event will be hosted by Branden Rickman, winner of Bravo Network's "Make Me a Supermodel," who at 18 years old became the first male model to ever win a reality TV competition.

Also joining the festivities is interior designer Matt Locke, who is the new spokesperson for SC Johnson's right@home® campaign with Walmart.® Known for transforming crisp, clean elements into beautiful, inviting spaces in a style he calls "warm modern," Locke continues to shape the design world, creating interiors, architecture and product prototypes all while lecturing widely on the history and current practice of design.

Locke's appearance as a contestant on HGTV's "DesignStar" introduced the world to his dynamic design style, and he'll impart words of wisdom, his design philosophy and creative approach during the keynote address.

The community is invited to attend this special, charity event:
