Our favorite independent designer showcase, The Pin Show, just keeps getting cooler and cooler. Helmed by founder and executive director Julie McCullough, the annual event will once again bring 1,500 plus guests through Deep Ellum’s 51,000-square-foot venue The Bomb Factory. A can’t miss event for fashion savvy Dallasites, The Pin Show is rolling out the red carpet and adding a few unique opportunities for attendees and designers alike. Read on for the scoop!
The ninth installment of Dallas’ premier independent fashion designer showcase promises to elevate its platform again this year by offering a more dynamic show overall for attendees. Returning Saturday, Feb. 18, this year’s Pin Show will also add a ground floor marketplace will be the destination for guests that have to get their hands on the hottest looks straight from the runway.
Wait, we’re not done yet! The crew has upped the ante with bigger and better light, sound and structure installations this year at The Bomb Factory and an interactive app that conveniently allows them to find and follow their favorite performers and designers. To show gratitude for supporting indie designers, sponsors and partners can also be followed via the app. Other features include being able to upload photos, find and see others photos, watch videos, access parking information and be updated on current news on the show. Attendees can download the app starting Monday, Feb. 6.
Collections from 27 established and emerging designers will grace the runway and this year such as Nigerian designer Dika Obiaju, UNT grad Jiani Chen, Melancholic Design by Jesse Thaxton, custom hat creator Brimm, and Dallas-based designer Haley Thompson of Beletsky. The Pin Show has also added a very special quartet of designers from overseas. Dallas dwellers can experience Indiaspopup.com, four designers from India who have shown at New York Fashion Week and India Fashion Week in hopes to expose designers to the DFW market.
Join us (and thousands of fashionable attendees) for the dynamic one-night fashion party in Deep Ellum, chock full of live music, on-site shopping and a professional runway showcase of independent designer collections. Stop by next week to get to know the seven creatives in The Pin Show’s established designer category.
