The Future of Fashion

Fashion Group International of Dallas is once again paying homage to the next generation of fashion designers and merchandisers with its annual scholarship competition event, Future of Fashion. We are excited to continue this 54-year tradition with a virtual event to be held April 26, 2022.

In the last 5 years FGI Dallas has awarded over $275,000 to talented students from fashion schools, colleges, and universities in the Southwest region.  The students submit apparel designs in four categories including Bridal/Evening/Long Gown, Little Black Dress/Cocktail, Sportswear (men & women combined), and Apparel Sustainability (using repurposed materials & application of technology). Merchandising students submit digital projects in two categories including Store Planning and Fashion Portfolio. The top awards in apparel design will be first place for Fashion Excellence and Director’s Choice.  We are excited to bring back the Paris American Academy Couture award for 2022.

The virtual event will consist of a video featuring a runway style fashion show of entries in the apparel design categories and an awards presentation to winners in apparel and merchandising programs. The event will include a keynote speaker which will be announced soon.

Signature design awards valued up to $5,000 from donors and sponsors generously make it possible for the Fashion Group Foundation of Dallas to fund these scholarships, maintaining FGI Dallas’ long-held tradition of supporting emerging fashion design and merchandising talent.

Please stay tuned for details about the competition and event as we provide updates to the Scholarship Competition website https://fgischolarship.org/.  For more information, call Roshawnda Foster in the FGI Dallas office at 214-634-0204 email fgidallas.office@gmail.com
