I attended my first DFW Teen Fashion Week fashion show, this year, with my [nine year old] daughter and we had a blast! DFW Teen Fashion Week held its 3rd Season the weekend of October 8th at Lofty Spaces in Dallas. Hosted by ICONIQ TEENDEVELOPMENT and Lady Jade of K104, a portion of the proceeds raised were donated to the Grant Halliburton Foundation to assist with teen suicide prevention.
DFW Teen Fashion Week is an action packed, two-day event full of music, dance, art, beauty, and the grand finale the “Oscars of fashion” aka, the DFW Teen Fashion Week fashion show! From the red carpet interviews to the last strut down the runway, this show was fire!
The Red Carpet
The designers were paparazzi ready as they hit the red carpet for photo ops and interviews. Providing a short glimpse of the personalities behind the designs.
Glam by Dasha cosmetics!
The cosmetic sponsor for this year’s show was Dasha cosmetics. I was able to catch grab a quick interview with House of Dasha Owner, Quinn McDaniel to learn a little more about the emerging cosmetic brand.
“We are always ahead of the game. We just launched our Silk Skin foundations which can go from the lightest of the light, to the darkest of the dark – we pasted that test. We have our highlighters, which is -again, we like simple but cute makeup where you don’t really have to over do it to be pretty. You can do it on your own, simple and look like you just got a beat at the makeup store,” she explained. I swatched some of the products while at the show, and will definitely be testing it out (and reviewing) soon!
Message through dance
The NG Pro Dance Company had a powerful performance with a message dealing with domestic violence. Everything about this performance was intense.
Ripping the Runway
The runway was blazing! There were toddlers, tiaras, grunge, swimwear, everyday wear and couture.
The Judges’ Verdict
The pressure was on for judges Willie Johnson, Keosha Piper, Xzandria Sanders, and Ronald Jones II as models hit the runway to showcase the designs and their skills. The 2017 award categories were (FFOF) Future Face of Fashion, FFOF Peoples Choice, FFOF Mr. and Mrs. Personality Awards; Female Icon, Male Icon, Peoples Choice, and Producers Awards.
