About The Pin Show:
The Pin Show 2012 was an award winning event with record setting attendance and designer representation and the team is gearing up for the 2013 event. Taking the show to an abandoned warehouse in the up and coming West Dallas neighborhood of Trinity Grove at the base of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. Embry and McCullough are once again producing the show with Mike Thompson as Creative Director.The high energy annual event has become known for featuring the latest in locally produced, independent fashion on a runway, boasting over 120 looks from more than 20 designers. While most designers are Texas based, the most recent Pin Show featured designers from Chicago, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. The Pin Show expects to see growth in its national reach with the introduction of the Artist in Residence Program and affiliation with The Fairmont Dallas, known for its support of the arts.Independent Designers Rachel Nichelson and Julie McCullough founded the Pin Show in 2007 to provide emerging fashion industry designers, photographers, artists, stylists and retail buyers with a profound launching platform for independent work in the fashion industry. After three successful shows, Nichelson moved on to concentrate on her own women’s wear line. In 2012, McCullough knew she wanted to continue and grow the impact of the event and, signing on Embry, had found the perfect partner to take The Pin Show to the next level, which provided the designers with more exposure and opportunity.
The Pin Show gives regional boutiques and buyers an opportunity to view independent lines during one showcase as well as meet with designers and discuss future business opportunities. In addition, guests will have a unique fashion experience that is generally reserved for high-end designers and their clientele. The show has been the first of its kind in the Southwest region to showcase a growing group of slow-fashion designers on one runway for an audience of over 1500 people, ranging from fashion hipsters to Dallas’ influential fashion industry leaders. –ThePinShow
