The CFDA’s {FASHION INCUBATOR} Designers in Dallas

As part of the CFDA’s partnership with the W Hotels, our {FASHION INCUBATOR} designers have the opportunity to showcase their collections in key retail cities throughout the United States. In December, one group of designers traveled down south to immerse themselves in the Atlanta market. Now, four of our talented designers will be showing their Fall 2013 collections in Dallas, with the guidance of CFDA business mentor and consultant, Roopal Patel.

On Monday, May 13, the CFDA landed in sunny Dallas, Texas at the W Hotel- Victory with some of our {FASHION INCUBATOR} designers: Arielle Shapiro of Ari Dein, Reece Solomon and Max Stein of Reece Hudson, Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein of Timo Weiland, and Jonathan Simkhai. After arriving at the sublime luxury hotel in Victory Park, our {FASHION INCUBATOR} designers hit the ground running. The designers met a slew of svelte models who showed if they could walk the walk down the long runway on the W Hotel’s premiere event space, Altitude. After thoughtful deliberation our {FASHION INCUBATOR} designers casted and fit models in the same afternoon, while squeezing in time to merchandise their collections.

More to come as our designers prep for the unveiling of their collections on Wednesday, May 14. Stay tuned for live tweets from @CFDA
