F.I.G. Is In Season

It isn’t enough to be fashion-conscious in 2012: You’ve got to look great without dissolving your bank account. It’s a fine line to balance — a tedious walk between appearing expensive and actual frugality, and that’s why the F.I.G. Fashion Finale has become a weekend-long magnet for Dallas shoppers. Stretching through the Fashion Industry Gallery’s museum-style space weaves a labyrinth of bargains. Each twist in the exploration is packed full of beautiful things by national companies such as Seven for All Mankind and Missoni, but also by local designers including Julep and Cotton Island. They’re united under the most honorable pledge we know: major price reductions. Apparel, jewelry, shoes and handbags will be marked down drastically, by as much as 75 percent off, so you can replace your tattered, homely and out-of-date rags with more stylish contemporaries, and feel smart about it 6 p.m. Thursday through 5 p.m. Saturday. F.I.G. is at 1807 Ross Ave. Register and buy tickets, which range from $15 to $50, at figfinaleaugust2012.eventbrite.com.
