About food in fashion

Sponsored by the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association, Food in Fashion invests in public high school culinary career education. 

Cuisine and couture collide Wednesday, February 7, 2018, when Food in Fashion returns to 3015 at Trinity Groves from 6-9 p.m. 3015 at Trinity Groves is located at 3015 Gulden Lane, at the west end of Dallas' iconic Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.


For Food in Fashion, 15 emerging fashion designers partner with restaurants and restaurant industry businesses. Together, they create fashions for 15 models in a Project Runway-like show.

WFAA-TV personality Ron Corning  will emcee the fashion show. Ivy Jane CEO Frances Malik and Nation's Restaurant News' Ron Ruggless will be two of our three fashion show judges.


Ten percent or more of each fashion must come out of the restaurant business ... whether edible or not.


Additionally, members of the Dallas ISD Board of Trustees team with Dallas ISD high school culinary career students to prepare appetizers in a friendly little Chopped-style competition.

Event guests are encouraged to accessorize from out of the kitchen. Drinks, a silent auction (also served up online), and haute music by Durty Laundry round out the occasion.

Hosted by the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association, proceeds from Food in Fashion benefit the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation and its Texas ProStart culinary career program ... where we are cultivating the next generation of restaurateurs.
