Hey fashion lovers! I’m so excited to share with you the amazing experience I had the other night attending Fashion Group International’s Dallas Rising Star of 2017 event! My good friend Laila invited me to the fashion show and I couldn’t be more thankful! Let me be totally honest here, I had never been to a real fashion show and had no idea what to expect. I’m a wannabe fashion blogger in Dallas with no experience in the fashion industry beyond what I’ve taught myself and learned from other bloggers. This experience reignited my love of fashion blogging and I’m so excited to share my night with you!
Dallas couture fashion
Ok first of all, I thought I had pretty good taste in clothing and fashion but FGI Rising Star event proved me wrong. When I left my apartment for the evening, I was pretty convinced my Donna Karan 2013 little red dress was the perfect ensemble for the event. Upon walking into the event space in the Dallas Galleria, I was immediately shocked by the couture, high fashion styles worn by other attendees. Dallas fashion is so much more than cowboy boots and jeans! You know when you look at someone and just know that their outfit is worth more than your car? That was pretty much everyone in the room. Except for me. Like I said, Donna Karan 2013 (that I got at an outlet).
The actual fashion shows were amazing. My favorite Dallas designer’s fashions was hands down Esé Azénabor’s collection. Everything had structure and clear purpose to it. I found myself about jumping out of my seat to get a good photo of each design that came down the runway. There was so much creative talent in one room it was absolutely wonderful to be apart of it!
Attending this event taught me so much about the fashion world that I didn’t know before. The styles on the runway aren’t necessarily meant to be worn but meant to showcase the art and thought that goes into making an outfit glamorous. So a big thank you to Fashion Group International of Dallas for putting on such a great event!
I honestly have so many more photos to share with you but these were the best ones I could get on my good ol’ iPhone 6. I simply refused to be that person that brings a big Nikon camera with several lenses to get a few good shots. Besides, I don’t want to be black listed from other events! My fashion career would end before it really began. Who wants that when they’ve worked so hard?
