This fall, CultureMap and the Plaza at Preston Center will celebrate Dallas’ most fashionable trendsetters in our inaugural Stylemaker Awards. You know the type: the women and men for whom style comes naturally, who can effortlessly throw together the most fabulous ensemble for any occasion.

From September 1-14, the public can nominate their most stylish female or male friends (or even themselves) by completing a quick and easy application. A panel of judges — including CultureMap editor-in-chief Jennifer Chininis and associate editor Diana Oates, Oh So Cynthia’s Cynthia Smoot, lady-about-town Yvonne Crum, FLUENT’s Jackson, and longtime local stylist and fashion writer Stephanie Quadri — will select the top nominees to move into the voting round.

On October 2, we will announce the six finalists from round one, and they will move into the final round of public voting to determine the readers’ choice. 

We will throw a Stylemaker Awards announcement party at Tootsies on October 15 during which we’ll unveil the editors’ choice and readers’ choice winners, while attendees enjoy bites, cocktails and live entertainment. The best part: the winners get a Plaza at Preston Center shopping spree and their very own styled feature in a Plaza ad campaign.
