BLKLN Menswear 2014 Spring-Summer Collection Receiving Rave Reviews

Jim Duran - the visionary behind the designs at BLKLN Menswear, is receiving rave reviews for his 2014 Spring / Summer Collection. A client of Dallas Light and Sound, we've worked with Jim and watched his brand develop during the last few years.... and the critical acclaim.... and the designer's unique perspective on fashion..... only continues to grow.

From D Magazine, to Fashion Scoop Daily, to The Examiner.com and Where Wear in the City, BLKLN's September show at the Aloft in Downtown Dallas drew fashion press praise... and a standing room only audience of appreciative fashionistas. Dallas Light and Sound provided risers for the fashion show, which the BLKLN staff trimmed in whimsical greenery for a stylish compliment to Jim Duran's designs.

Congratulations to Jim Duran on the success of BLKLN. For additional information and the latest updates, visit BLKLN Menswear on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/anthony.klatt.3#!/BlklnMenswear.

The BLKLN Fall Winter 2013 pieces are a dramatic departure - edgy and dark - and visually stunning. To see professional shots of Jim Duran's winter creations, and to stay up to date with his brand, visit the BLKLN blog page at http://blklnclothing.blogspot.com/

5th Annual MADI Museum Geometric Gala set for Friday in the Design District

Sue and Frank Tortoriello, Honorary Co-Chairs, and the MADI Board invite you to join them at the 5TH ANNUAL GEOMETRIC GALA on Friday, October 12, 2012 from 7 - 10 pm at 145 Manufacturing Street in the Design District.  The evening will include the award-winning Texas Gypsies with wine and hors d'oevres provided by Doug Boster Gourmet Catering and MADItinis courtesy of Dripping Springs Vodka. A silent auction of luxury items and original art by local and international artists helps support the museum’s exhibits and programming. Dallas Light and Sound is transforming what is essentially a vacant showroom into a tastefully lit event venue. 

Gala tickets are $80 per person and $90 at the door. Again this year, Dallas’ own geometric artist, Ricardo Paniagua has donated one of his fabulous sculptures for our raffle. Tickets for the raffle are $20 for one or $100 for six and you need not attend the Gala to win.
This is a landmark year for the Museum of Geometric & MADI Art, as they are celebrating their 10th Anniversary.  Over the last decade, the Museum of Geometric & MADI Art has worked diligently to bring this contemporary and unique genre of art to the Dallas art community.  With the help of their board and loyal members, the 2013 Geometric Gala, to be held on October 11, 2013, promises to be our biggest and best! The Geometric Gala 2013 will go down in the history books for the Museum of Geometric & MADI Art as they boldly chart new waters. 

This event represents milestone for the organization. Continued growth coupled with previous gala successes, have necessitated a move of their annual Gala from the MADI to larger event space, in order to accommodate our passionate patrons!  This year the Geometric Gala will be held at 145 Manufacturing Street in the Design District, just a hop, skip and a jump from MADI's proposed future new site!

Valet parking will be provided by Preferred Parking DFW.

Red Party 2013 featured former American Idol contestant Kimberly Caldwell and DJ Joe Gathreaux on the decks spinning for an enthusiastic crowd. Red Party Foundation holds the Red Party once each year, with proceeds benefiting Legacy Counseling Centers. Dallas Light and Sound provided concert quality audio, event lighting, staging, dancefloor lighting, red carpets, entry design and event floorplan design for the Red Party. In our 5th year as the Red Party production partner, the 2013 edition stands out as a transformative event production, that elevated the event and the space to new heights. Red Party was held at the Fashion Industry Gallery in Downtown Dallas.
