Watch Dallas' top fashion designers work the runway at Pin Show
Fashion enthusiasts recently gathered at the revived Bomb Factory in Deep Ellum for the Pin Show, where nearly two dozen designers sent their creations down the catwalk during a high-energy production.
Co-founder Julie McCullough says that the Pin Show started in 2007 to "really create a movement here in Dallas for independent design." The goal was to get designers — some local, some not — in front of a bigger audience through the kind of large-scale production typically reserved for more high-end designers and their clientele.
This year, all 22 designers — whittled down from a pool of 55 applicants — were local. "That speaks volumes about where Dallas' independent fashion scene is right now," McCullough says.
Says designer Eric Renteria of Beaus & Ribbons, "This show to me is the most important because it's just about the designers."
