Cosmo Couturethe annual fundraising event hosted by the IIDA Mid-Atlantic Chapter — is easily one of the Washington metro area’s most raucous and well-attended industry events. This year’s event was held in D.C.’s historic Howard Theatre with a “Big Top” circus theme, and we were there to witness the creativity and fun.
