Beautify The World Through Fashion

If there’s one thing we know in Dallas, it’s backcombing. And if there’s another thing, it’s fashion. We have malls, boutiques, designers and knockoffs. So it’s only fitting that we have an entire charity dedicated to providing professional attire to underprivileged women. This isn’t an easy city to succeed in without looking the part. They’re called Dress for Success and when they put on a fundraiser, they put on a show. Literally. A fashion show called Light the Runway, where you’ll have an opportunity to eat, drink and exclaim, “Ooohhh, y’all, I want that.” Gather ye fashionistas at 129 Leslie, conveniently located at 129 Leslie St. in the Design District from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday for an evening of intense fashion, light banter and nary a coverall in sight. A donation of $50 scores you a limited-edition designer scarf by Echo. Aside from that, tickets are $36.86 and available now at dfsdallas.org.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
