Fashion Week is returning to Dallas March 17 -23! After a series of Fashion Week flops in the past several years, Dallas fashion junkies have the right to be skeptical. With that in mind, this year’s Fashion Week creator Nausheen Daniel and executive director Cedric Moses are completely revamping the event. The executive team gathered inspiration from New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in preparation to put Dallas on the national Fashion Week map.
“The goal of Fashion Week DFW is to become an integral part of the DFW Fashion Community, supporting its eclectic sense of identity and the diversity along with showcasing these talents to the world,” according to a press release about the event.
Daniel and Moses are no strangers to the fashion scene either. Daniel is an up and coming local designer in the process of opening up her own store. Moses is the current CEO of DFW Concierge Services, from which he has established multiple corporate connections to aid him in the planning of this event.
The breakdown for each day of Fashion Week DFW can be found at www.dallasfashioncalendar.com and is as follows:
10am – 2pm: Educational seminars directed towards fashion industry professionals.
10am – 6pm: Daily runway shows, trunk shows, retail happy hours, retail/restaurant discounts and specials throughout the DFW Metroplex
7pm – 9pm: Fashion Week DFW official Runways featuring emerging and established designers and entertainment
Fashion Week DFW also aims to draw more attention to Dallas designers. It will feature collections from local designers such as Isabel Varela, Leslie Pennel, Lisha Brightman and the creator’s own Nausheen Daniel Design, in addition to the more famous designers who are Fashion Week regulars.
Also in keeping with the fashionable theme, Dallas’ newest luxury hotel, the Omni, is set to host the weeklong extravaganza.
“The Omni is a remarkable venue and will allow us to truly showcase DFW’s highly fashionable talents of fashion designers, boutique owners, make-up artist, models and fashion-enthusiasts,” Daniel says.
