Food in Fashion Set for February 15th at Trinity Groves

On Feb. 15, 2017, the culinary industry in Dallas will join forces with the fashion industry in Dallas to present a fundraising reception like no other in the city's history.
Presented by the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association, Food in Fashion will bring together the city's most creative fashion industry professionals with the city's most popular food service establishments to produce the most innovative runway show Dallas has seen.
Each fashion model will 'strike a pose' in attire that incorporates some edible, drinkable or service item representing one of the event's restaurant industry partners.
Proceeds from this first-of-its-kind charitable event will go to the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation – a 501(c)(3) non-profit – and the culinary education programs within the Dallas Independent School District.
Both Patron and Attender tickets are now available for sale with an early bird discount. Use EATTHIS as your promotion code before Feb. 1, 2017, and save 10 percent of your ticket.
Teams uniting Dallas ISD trustees with students in the district’s culinary education programs will compete on-site to prepare the event’s most popular gourmet appetizer. And attendees will also be able to bid on items in a ten-package silent auction.
The event’s organizers invite businesses across North Texas to participate in this unique evening. Especially sought are:
Fashion Industry Partners Fashion designers, retail apparel stores, fashion design schools, costume designers for theater, professional stylists, clothing manufacturers, wholesale apparel businesses, fashion publications
Restaurant Industry Partners Restaurants, bars, caterers, independent chefs, food stylists, restaurant supply companies, food or beverage distribution companies, breweries, distilleries
