A Star Studded Night at Galleria Dallas

It was a star-studded night on Thursday, February 26 as Fashion Group International of Dallas' took over GALLERIA DALLAS to celebrate their 2015 Rising Stars Awards — Bringing with them all of Dallas’ fashion community that included local designers, editors, bloggers, artists, and photographers. And of course the customary partygoers were in attendance, too!

Just as you would expect the guests were dressed to impress — A pair of Louboutin heels here, a fur here and there, and even outfits from Zara. We saw it all, literally! But we weren’t the only ones with our eyes wide open; FGI's Fashion Police was on the lookout too. As they seem to be handing out plenty of citations throughout the evening.

The nonprofit organization transformed Galleria Dallas’ iconic ice-skating rink into a fashion wonderland completed with its own runway. Shay

Geyer played emcee for the night, while Jan Strimple flawlessly orchestrated the various runway shows that took place throughout the night. The shows featured looks from stores like Aftershock London, BCBG, Belk, and Nordstrom just to name a few. The night came to a climax with a final runway show featuring local designers: Lucy Dang, Binzario Couture, and Esé Azénabor, all which were nominees for the “Rising Star Award in Fashion Design.”

As for the winners of coveted Rising Star Award, you asked? The 2015 Rising Star Award winners included: Lucy Dang for Fashion Design, Brandon Lyon for Photography, Brant McFarlain for Interior Design, Megan Thorne for Jewelry Design, Dr. Naila Malik for Beauty, and Shayema Rahim for Art.
