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.
