A mixture of eclectic people and cultures come together to celebrate the beauty of fashion and self-expression. Fashion Week kicked-off with Fashion x Art a night of collaborative designs between local artists and DFW designers. This was followed by the Avante-Garde show that combined renowned stylists such as Joe Denny or Swank with creators Rachel Marie Hurst and Idiot Cult to name a few. Thursday, Garbarini presented Fall fashion trends and Saturday’s International and National night showcased creatives from around the US and Mexico city.
