Year after year,the Pin Show rocks the Dallas scene and hails as one of our favorite fashion events for the year. Categorized as one of the “Best Fashion Shows in Dallas”, the annual showcase serves as both a platform for independent designers and a hub for enthusiasts to experience one of Dallas’ most dynamic runway presentations.
Returning for its seventh season, the Pin Show recently released the date, location and details surrounding its 2015 event. Traditionally slated for the third Saturday in February, organizers dish that next year’s show will fall later in the year due to construction setbacks surrounding its newest venue—Deep Ellum’s Bomb Factory. With the main event currently scheduled for April 4, 2015, founder and Executive Director Julie McCullough (pictured below) hints that the minor delay will be well worth the wait.
“The Pin Show could not be more excited about this partnership [with the Bomb Factory],” Mccullough claims. “We’ve been in talks with The Bomb Factory since before The Pin Show 2014, and moving the show to a later date for one year only is a small sacrifice in exchange for the level of awesomeness this venue and team will provide for the event!”
From VIP suites to 15 bars on site, the Bomb Factory’s 41,000 square foot space is prime for housing the rapidly growing event. Earlier this year, the high-energy fête welcomed more than 2,000 guests to The Good Year Plant in Dallas’ Design District and from what we are hearing, the 2015 show is set to attract even more. While concerns remain of whether construction will be completed timely for the new location, Pin Show organizers remain upbeat and focused on making 2015, a “record setting year.”
In the past, over 20 emerging designers have been selected to participate in the honorary show, with a total of up to 175 looks gracing the runway. Although details remain pending on the status of the selected designers, our intuition tells us that past themes of bridal, women’s ready-to-wear, intimates, jewelry and handbags will be making a reoccurring appearance. With the final designer selections coming soon, our eyes and ears will remain low to the ground to report new developments as they arise for this spirited event.
