Little Black Dress 2016 at Park Place Volvo Benefits Legal Hospice of Texas - 2017 Edition Approaching

Francisco Flores created the winning look at
Little Black Dress 2016 at Park Place Volvo
Legal Hospice of Texas produces two major fashion events each year. One of these is Little Black Dress which is held early in the year, often in January. Showcased designers at Little Black Dress choose their most fashionable look and compete for the crowd chosen honor of being recognized as having designed the best look of the night. Most if not all of the LBD designers go on to show capsule collections at Legal Hospice’s second major fashion production - Fashion CITED – a runway extravaganza held later in the year. 

With the 2017 edition of Little Black Dress less than a month away, Dallas Light and Sound is looking back at the 2016 Legal Hospice fashion soiree held at Park Place Volvo. Fashion calendars across North Texas were marked weeks in advance for Little Black Dress 2016 held at Park Place Volvo on January 15th,. Attendees helped Legal Hospice "Spy" the best Little Black Dress in North Texas when designers for the Legal Hospice of Texas 10th annual Fashion CITED show brought their best work to show one look for one night as a preview to the main event. More than 300 patrons turned out to cast their votes to select a dress by Franciso Flores as the top design. Flores is one of the founders of Fashion CITED and continues to serve as the production manager and lead organizer. 

Unlike many fashion shows, guests at Little Black Dress are able to get up close and personal with each designer creation to appreciate the skills of the participating designers and to meet the designers who attend the event. 

Joining co-producers Flores and Cathy Garcia, local fashionistas Leah Frazier and Vanessa Lua attended Little Black Dress 2016 and were recognized as the Co-Chair s of Fashion CITED. DJ Tony Dean manned the decks to spin mysterious spy tunes and helped emcee the event. More than 300 patrons packed Park Place Volvo to sip cocktails, taste lite bites, socialize, and cast their votes. Dallas light and Sound provided flatscreens for sponsor recognition and event branding, a sound system for public address and music playback, cocktail bars for beverage service, a red carpet walkup, and pipe and drape to define the space. DLS also supplied elevated runways and modelling stations so that guests could see the fashions showcased by the designers. 

The 2017 edition of Little Black Dress is slated for Friday, January 12th at the beautiful showroom of Goodson Acura. A $25 donation at the door equips attendees with four votes to cast for their favorite Little Black Dress. Guests will enjoy one of the most engaging and fun fashion presentations in North Texas plus complimentary food, drinks, music and fun! We'll hope to see you there! DJ Tony Dean will be back this year to spin some “Rhythm and Hues” for the evening. A unique X shaped runway from Dallas Light and Sound will anchor the showroom, providing 360 degree surround viewing of all designer entrees in the contest. The event serves as a preview of Fashion CITED 2017, scheduled later in 2017 at Frontiers of Flight Museum, and benefits Legal Hospice of Texas.
