Ten emerging fashion designers will partner with ten restaurants to create fashions for ten models in a Project Runway-like show. Ten percent or more of each fashion must come out of the restaurant ... whether edible or not.
The Dallas ISD Board of Trustees will team with Dallas ISD high school culinary career students and prepare appetizers in a friendly little Chopped-like competition.
Offering appetizers, drinks, a silent auction, DJ, and a delicious fashion show, proceeds from this reception benefit the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation and its Texas ProStart culinary career program (where we are cultivating the next generation of restaurateurs) which is offered in Dallas ISD high schools.
Cocktail attire ... but go ahead and garnish your look with something from the kitchen.
Food in Fashion is presented by Neiman Marcus, Elettore, Trinity Groves, Save the Patio, and 3015 at Trinity Groves.
