Designer Call - The Pin Show

The Pin Show is back and looking for local talent to take the stage in 2010. Wanted: Emerging designers who have an original take on style & a knack for creating innovative garments & accessories. The annual Independent Fashion show is taking over downtown Dallas' Union Station on February 25, 2010, and will feature more than 25 independent designers.

The Pin Show celebrates the works of myriad "slow fashion" designers whose blood, sweat & tears go into the work they produce. This is a great opportunity for designers that combine marketable garments with ideas of sustainability & social responsibility. Impacting their local workforces and economies by paying a fair wage and creating a smaller quantity of garments in higher quality is the ultimate goal of independent designers.

Aside from the astounding runway show, designer's works will be the subject of live photo shoots on two styled sets and, in a rare opportunity, event goers favorite runway looks will be available for purchase at the pop-up, on-site boutique PINS. With over 1,200 people in attendance, The Pin Show gives up and coming and designers a chance to their showcase original lines to the masses, and provides a launch pad and introduction into the Independent Fashion industry, as many in attendance are regional boutique owners and potential buyers. In addition to the emerging designers and top students The Pin Show has promoted in the past, the new show will also be featuring independent style makers already in boutiques - locally and nationwide - with a runway event to showcase their latest collections.

Independent Designers Rachel Nichelson and Julie McCullough Kim founded PINS in 2007 with hopes of connecting emerging and independent slow-fashion designers with those prevalent in the Dallas Fashion Industry. All fashion industry designers, photographers, artists, stylists are encouraged to apply for various opportunities.
