Carpet couture runway show

On 17 January 2013, the Canadian home outfitter Korhani premiered in Germany with its carpet couture runway show for home fashion during Berlin Fashion Week. The hair style of the models was created by the team of Aveda.

Founded more than 100 years ago in the early 20th century, Korhani provides 'fashion' for interior like carpets and other home furnishings. Creative Director Kirsten Korhani incorporates into the collections the experiences she made in fashion industry. For the presentation of the home textiles, the fabrics are manufactured as clothing items like day and evening wear, ball robes, and boudoir outfits which are shown on the runway such as at the Master Card Fashion Week last October 2012 in Toronto (video blow).
