Pin Show 2013 Has a New Home, a New Vibe and, Yes, Booze Served from Firetrucks

"I'm not going to fight with the room," says Pin Show Executive Producer Julie McCullough. She's explaining her newly targeted plan for this year's massive fashion fête, happening on Saturday, February 23, and its exciting departure from the ordinary. "I don't want to pageant it up."

In 2012, we found ourselves absorbing Pin at the Fairmont Hotel, immersed in easy luxury -- chandeliers dripped lavishly from above as a formal runway jettisoned out. It was a highly-structured display. This year, models will hoof down the concrete floor of a West Dallas warehouse, heels clacking over the hum of generators.
