Last Thursday I attended Fashion Cited: Little Black Dress Party at Murray Covens Contemporary in Dallas, TX.  I had a great time visiting and connecting with new people in the industry.  For those of you who don't know about Fashion Cited, it has become one of the most anticipated and exciting fashion shows in North Texas.  The shows co-producers, local designers Francisco Flores and Cathy Garcia, are well-known for engaging established and emerging designers and clothiers to create a high-energy fashion show.  Previous shows featured Nha Khanh, Abi Ferrin and several others.  What's so great about this event is that it benefits the Legal Hospice of Texas, a nonprofit law firm providing compassionate legal services at no charge to low income individuals who are terminally ill or HIV positive.  The Little Black Dress Party was a "sneak peak" for what is in store for the grand event which will be held April 3rd.  You can read more about the upcoming fashion show here and to buy tickets click here.  During this event, the designer's models wore their "little black dress" and the guests had to vote for their favorite.  At the end of the night the winner was revealed.  Scroll down to check out the winning look.
