The Dallas Fashion Awards paid tribute to area retailers' favorite brands last month. For the 32nd year, buyers chose their top labels in eight categories and honored the winners at a gala on Oct. 21. Also feted at the ceremony was designer Phillip Lim, recipient of the Rising Star Award, and luxury retailer Neiman Marcus, which received the Fashion Excellence Award — the Dallas Market Center's highest honor. Here, a look at the winners.
