GREAT X-PECTATIONS

Where Dallas - - WHERE NOW -

Now in its third year, Fash­ion X Dal­las (Sept. 8-10)—the premier fall event for the DFW style scene—al­lows pa­trons to dis­cover North Texas’ most promis­ing de­sign­ers, and shows spec­ta­tors not only which trends are on tap for fall, but where one can find said trends lo­cally. “I’ve been see­ing vel­vets, bo­hemian sil­hou­ettes, plaids and suit­ing in un­ex­pected ways and streetwear rem­i­nis­cent of the ‘90s, in­clud­ing sweats and hood­ies,” says Fash­ion X Founder Matt Swin­ney, who gave us the scoop on Texas’ ris­ing stars in fash­ion. “The ones I’m re­ally in­ter­ested in are the de­sign­ers where we’ve only seen one or two pre­vi­ous col­lec­tions ... Clan of Cro, Tins­ley Radix, and Fer­rah come to mind,” Swin­ney said, as well as DFW de­sign­ers Gus­tavia and Lizna, whose first full col­lec­tions will de­but on the Fash­ion X Runway. As al­ways, Dal­las-based Bin­zario is ex­pected to send out some show­stop­ping cou­ture gowns and Abi Fer­rin, who Swin­ney says “is just a master at mak­ing flat­ter­ing cloth­ing for ev­ery woman,” will also present her fall col­lec­tion.
