DALLAS -- The second Texas Designer Collective fashion show will be staged at noon April 8 at the International Apparel Mart here during the Mega Market, slated for April 7-11.
The show, geared for an audience of retailers and press, will spotlight fall collections of more than 50 Texas firms and their use of natural fibers such as cotton, wool and mohair, as well as leather. It will be underwritten by Cotton Incorporated, the Mohair Council of Texas, the Texas Sheep and Goat Raisers Association and Heller Financial.
The collective, first staged last October during market week, again will be coordinated by the Texas Department of Agriculture, which about two years ago kicked off the Naturally Texas campaign to promote the state's fiber and fashion industries.
