New Dallas Fashion Show: “Hype Society” Showcases Local Streetwear Designers

IMG_8793 If you love fashion, then you've most likely been following along with all the glamour and runway shows of Paris fashion week wishing you could be there! No worries, you're in for a treat this weekend. You don't need to be in Paris to enjoy an amazing showcase of fashion, just come out to Dallas! "Hype Society" Dallas' newest fashion show aims to highlight some of Dallas' best untapped streetwear designers will be taking place January 26th, from 8 P.M to 11 P.M at the newly opened Place at Tyler in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas. IMG_9099 “Hype Society” is a play off the hype culture in fashion that has spawned from designers such Kanye West’s Yeezy line with Adidas and other brands such as Alexander Wang,OFF-White, Billionaire Boys Club,Supreme and Stussy. Even brands such as Fendi, Gucci and Louis Vuitton are releasing streetwear lines specifically catered to this audience. The show's creator, local emcee Nick Whitener, known as “RAW Elementz” created the concept in an effort to launch his new clothing line “4Everfly” and realized there were an abundance of talented streetwear designers in the city but a lack of platforms for them to showcase. Partnering with local PR company Creative Currency to produce the event, Whitener wants to highlight Dallas’s top local streetwear designers while providing an experience for guests to embrace Dallas’s talented emerging streetwear designers and its culture.
