Fashion X Dallas set for September 8 - 10 at F.I.G.

The 3rd Annual Fashion X Dallas Presented by Cadillac is almost here and will take place September 8-10, 2016 at Fashion Industry Gallery (FIG)! Fashion X Dallas is the premiere “fashion week” in the DFW market and features 3 nights of runway shows each Fall.

FXD 2016 will feature 3 nights of stunning runway shows featuring STARS from Lifetime Television’s hit series Project Runway, the best and brightest designers from the DFW Metroplex and emerging designers you can DISCOVER from around the globe.

The GALLERY, a collection of pop up shops hosted by jewelry and accessories designers for both men and women, will be open for pre and post show browsing all three nights of runway shows. Presenting sponsor for the event is Cadillac.

Fashion X Dallas was established in 2014 by the Fashion X, the founders of Austin Fashion Week, Fashion X Dallas and, coming in 2016, Fashion X Houston.

The Fashion Industry Gallery was packed with fashionistas
during Fashion X Dallas 2014.
Each night in 2016 will feature at least 9 full runway collections from local DFW-based designers, Season Winners and All Stars from the hit Lifetime Television show Project Runway, and emerging designers from across the globe. FXD also gives opportunities to the youngest of designers through CAPSULE, mini 3-look collections allowing for an accessible runway experience.

One talented DFW based designer will also receive the 2016 BERNINA Dallas Fashion Fund to help spur their career with tools necessary for the trade. The 2014 winner was Nine Muses and the 2015 winner was Smith II.

In the words of James Nelson from our friends at The Original Cupcakery - we couldn't agree more! It was an honor to be invited and to be involved in this celebration.

"Original Cupcakery was honored to be invited to "AIDS INTERFAITH NETWORKS 30th ANNIVERSARY EVENT". We continue to support the community as best we can when ever possible when it comes to HEROS!

 And the STAFF of AIN are nothing short of HERO's.... 30 years of selfless giving, and heart felt love of those impacted by HIV/AIDS has elevated the community in ways not often recognized. HIV/AIDS has met its match and the war is being won, slowly but surely with amazing groups like A...IN taking action to educate and eliminate the fear of living with infection while giving much needed resources to those in need. Over the years we have continued to support AIN because of their amazing work, we suggest you look into this organization and become a supporter as well, every helping hand is appreciated.

Many of you have experienced the ROARING 20's GREAT GATSBY .....but this year AIN is bringing us forward to another GOLDEN AGE by changing it up a bit and taking us "RETRO" ....."LIVE The Sands, A Retro Nightclub Experience".....The Rat Pack is BACK! November 5th!

SAVE the DATE....and start getting that "WARDROBE" ready because this will be the HOTTEST TICKET in DFW! ....GLAMEROUS is what's in and no one does it better than a party by AIN!"

We're looking forward to helping produce "LIVE at The Sands" at 3525 Commerce Event Center in Deep Ellum on November 5th - please join us from 9pm to midnight!

The staff at AIDS Interfaith Network celebrate the organization's 30th Anniversary with a day
of remembrance and optimism at the Interfaith Peace Chapel on the campus of Cathedral of Hope.
