"Rock The Runway" Fashion Show and Designer Competition Benefiting the Junior League of Dallas

Fashion designers Abi Ferrin, Oscar Fierro, Patti Flowers, Shemara Jeyarajah and Khanh Nguyen will be “Rocking the Runway” on Thursday, April 8 at F.I.G. for the “Rock the Runway” Fashion Show and Design Competition. This edgy inaugural event for the Junior League of Dallas will feature a special evening-wear look created by each designer specifically for this contest using non-traditional materials given to them. Among the non-traditional materials are copies of D Magazine and D Home as well as emblems from Park Place Dealerships. Guests will be able to see these designer creations on celebrity models Tina Craig, Aiysha Spears, Victoria Snee, Amy Venderoef and Tracy Rathbun.

The winner of this contest will be selected by judges Barbara Adelglass, Donnie Brown, Shirin Askari, Kate Wagner, Stephanie Quadri and Elaine Raffel during the event. Emcee Lisa Garza will announce the winner while Janine Turner will present the award. In addition, the designers’ evening creations will be displayed at Dillard’s NorthPark for one week following the event.

While sipping on cocktails from Rose’s and Diageo, the 500 guests will also see some of the designers’ current creations showcased during the fashion show. And in addition to the rockin’ fashion show, guests can bid on fabulous silent auction items such as custom design tote bags from Kate Unger, the cast of Wicked, Todd Fiscus, Cal Slayton, The Nest and Cosabella plus many others.

All proceeds benefit the Junior League of Dallas, an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Each year the Junior League donates approximately $1 million and more than 120,000 volunteer hours to the Dallas community through 40–50 selected agencies.

Individual tickets are $100 each. Sponsorships are available for $2,500. For more information, please contact Lauren Maggard at maggard.lauren@att.net.
