Iron Designer is the biggest and most energetic event at IFE! Competitors compete live at IFE in front of a cheering audience, creating designs from fresh cut flowers and a few accessories. Each year a new theme is implemented but remains a mystery until just moments before the competition kicks off. The competitors are challenged to create a design they best feel represents the theme with only the supplies provided to them AND all within 20 minutes.
A panel of judges will choose a winner whom receives a trophy and cash. All designs will be on display for the remainder of the show.
