International Automotive Components Group (IAC Group), a leading global supplier of automotive components and systems, is revealing a bespoke dress at the Charity Preview Event at NAIAS coincides with New York Fashion Week. The gown was crafted from three types of sustainable materials traditionally found in several of IAC Group's automotive applications. There's Dinamica, a microfiber fabric material partially derived from recycled polyester, plus flower appliques made of a combination of cork coverstock and laser wood coverstock. The gown is accented with jewelry pieces that make the most of materials like discarded polypropylene fishing nets and IAC's award-winning mold in color plastic.
IAC Group chief administrative officer Iwona Niec Villaire donned the bespoke dress designed by the company's award-winning seamstresses, celebrating the return of the North American International Auto Show.
