Dallas dishes its fair share of charitable events and glamorous galas, but none other more endearing than the upcoming Bobby Norris Roundup for Autism Fashion Show and Luncheon. Taking place on April 23, The Fairmont Hotel will house many of Dallas’ most notable influencers and change-makers as they walk down the runway in couture fashion for a cause. Entitled “A Walk in Paris,” the event will mark many fashionable firsts, with designer label Binzario Couture revealing its new formal wear collection for the first time, and the organization showcasing its first-ever runway presentation for the charity.
Produced by esteemed stylist Jeanette Chivvis, the fashion show is slated to unveil 21 never-before-seen formal gowns designed and produced by Binzario Couture. Creating a noticeable shift and expanding its brand beyond bridal couture, we caught up with the label to scoop the latest on the newest collection, channel a little Parisian flair, and to get the ultimate sneak peek on what will traverse the runway at the April 23rd event. Oui!
Binzario Couture founders Andre Yabin and Luis Nazario (pictured below) ditched the idea of a traditional trunk show presentation and unconventionally decided to reveal the new gown collection at the Roundup charity event. “[While] bridal gowns will always be the center of Binzario Couture, we see this as an opportunity to tap into another market and a way to continue to bring couture and fashion to our clientele,” Yabin discloses.
Benefiting Autism Treatment Centers of Texas, the event has already ushered in widespread support with tickets anticipating a sell out. In the spirit of charitable giving, Binzario has agreed to raffle two one-of-a-kind couture gala gowns to raise money for the cause, in addition to other initiatives sought to showcase awareness for autism and its effect on the community.
With heavy influencers such as DFW Style Daily Founder Lisa Petty, Belk Personal Shopper and luxury jewelry designer Charmaine Marshall, and Dallas’ top lifestyle blogger Cynthia Smoot strutting as models in the fashion show, we snagged some behind the scenes first-looks to rev up excitement for what’s in store April 23.
