The Fashionistas and CultureMap hosted the first installment of Fashionistas Fashion Fridays at Fedora for what will surely become a hot monthly ritual for the Dallas social set.

What is Fashion Friday, you ask? It's an informal yet posh presentation featuring some of Dallas' newest talent in the fashion industry.

The talent this night was Nine Muses, founded by Jerry Matthews and Francesca Viamonte. Guests — including Gina Ginsburg, Janet and Rick Fresquez, Cynthia Smoot, Julie McCullough, Jayne Chobot Herring, Madison Hunnicut, and Dan Pritchett — snacked on Italian bites from Fedora's kitchen while watching the informal fashion presentation.

Models from Dragonfly Agency — with hair by the Hair Bar and makeup by Loren Ridinger — flaunted looks from Nine Muses' fall/winter 2013 collection. Nine Muses does custom couture pieces, available by appointment.

As a part of the new mission of The Fashionistas, this series of free events is designed to make fashion more accessible to the masses and bring greater exposure to emerging local design talent. The next installment of Fashionistas Fashion Fridays will be November 8 at Fedora. Stay tuned for details about the next featured designer.
