Greater Dallas Restaurant Association presents Food in Fashion
Food in Fashion combines North Texas’ restaurant, hospitality, fashion and restaurant industries during a fun-filled evening that benefits career education. The evening will consist of pre- and post-fashion show VIP receptions, a food-infused fashion show, silent and live auctions, and appetizers and drinks.
At the heart of Food in Fashion is its showcase of local student culinary teams. During a friendly competition, three-person student teams will prepare appetizers for Food in Fashion and then present them to guests at the event. As many as a dozen teams will be chosen to participate. Culinary team hors d’oeuvres will be judged by a panel of professionals. A Culinary Cup trophy will be awarded and top-placing teams will be eligible to have a program “wish list” need donated by Food in Fashion.
In addition to delicious appetizers, attendees will be treated to a delectable food-infused fashion show. With Food in Fashion, designers create fashion entries that wow the crowd with creativity. A local restaurant donates to Food in Fashion for the opportunity to sponsor a design. At least 10 percent of the design must then come out of the restaurant. The volunteer fashion designers have one month to design and build their fashion show entry. During the show, each fashion will be judged by a panel in the audience and prizes will be awarded to the top designers and models wearing the winning designs.
