THE SCENE: Dallas’ Fashion Industry Gallery was recently the setting for three evenings of runway collections, drawing nearly 2,000 fans of Dallas fashion and style elite. The 4th annual Fashion X Dallas, presented by Cadillac, featured a dazzling array of beautiful fall fashion collections, all the while honoring some of Dallas’ most stylish women who give back to the community they love.
THE VIBE: The welcoming vibe was felt each evening from the moment the members of Dallas’ stylerazzi walked down the runway style sidewalk featuring various Cadillac models on display. Upon entering into the gallery, guests were able to pose for photos showcasing the mix of stylish cocktail and party chic attire on the red carpet. Guests then ascended the stairs to the second floor where they were greeted with champagne sponsored by Chloe wines. En route to the hip and happening VIP gifting lounge, fashionistas were able to view over 20 designers via pop-up boutiques showcasing the latest up and coming fashion trends before ultimately taking their seats for the main event: the runway collections.
These collections featured something for everyone… from the young to the young at heart. Collection upon collection impressed the stylish crowd with each designer’s innovative and unique points of view and their interpretation of fashion. Each evening also added an element of giving back that included honoring the generous trend-setters in Dallas. The honorees were LeeAnne Locken and Steve Kemble on Thursday evening, Heidi Dillon on Friday evening, and Linda Gray on Saturday evening. Each of the honorees wore their most memorable looks from their closets, showcasing the effortless range of their impeccable style.
THE CAUSE: Portions of the proceeds from the event benefitted local charities of the honorees’ choice. Thursday evening honoring LeeAnne Locken and Steve Kemble benefitted AIDS Services of Dallas. Friday evening honoring Heidi Dillon benefitted the FGI Dallas Scholarship Fund. Saturday evening honoring Linda Gray benefitted the city’s Assist the Officer Foundation.
