XO Jane did an amazing job transforming the space for their SXSW Official Event, “The Top 25 Most Shameless People on the Internet”. All it took was some tape, a little ingenuity, and a lot of hard work to craft up this SXSW wonderland.

Brianna did a fantastic job utilizing the projection wall for her model showcase. By building the runway up against the wall, she was able to create slides as a projected backdrop for each model as the walked down the runway
