Ready to Wear–and Eat: 5th Annual Food in Fashion Charity Event Presented by the Greater Dallas Chapter of the Texas Restaurant Association Set for Feb. 22 | Texas

FROM THE , January 19, 2022 / PRNewswire / – Style and cuisine will collide at 5th annual Food in fashion show, presented by Greater Dallas Chapter of the Texas Restaurant Association on Tuesday 22nd February 2022, in Dallas. On stage at Fashion industry gallery (1807 Ross Avenue), the anticipated event brings together North Texas’ restaurants, hospitality and fashion industries for an exciting and fun evening, all in support of the continuing education initiatives of the Texas Restaurant Foundation.

Guests will mingle at pre- and post-show VIP receptions, witness a food-packed fashion show, bid on silent and live auctions, and enjoy elevated appetizers and drinks. A favorite of the hospitality industry, the arts community and the general public, Food in Fashion is sold out every year.

The heart of Food in Fashion is a showcase for up to twelve local student culinary teams. During a friendly competition, three-person student teams will prepare appetizers for the evening and present the bites to the event guests. The starters culinary team will then be judged by a professional panel of judges, who will award the winner the Ben E. Keith Culinary Cup trophy. Teams that finished first will also be eligible to meet a program wish list requirement via a donation from Food in Fashion.

An extravagant fashion show anchored in food blurs artistic boundaries as designers unveil creations that are based on donations from local restaurants. A local restaurant makes a donation to Food in Fashion in exchange for the opportunity to sponsor an individual design and, in turn, at least 25% of that original design must incorporate the restaurant’s donations. Each volunteer stylist has one month to design and create their own fashion show.

During the Food in Fashion show, each entry is judged by a jury. Prizes are awarded to the best designers and models who wear the winning models.

Food in Fashion tickets are currently on sale HERE. Four ticket packages ranging from $ 100 to $ 250 are available. For sponsorship opportunities, they range from $ 1,000 to $ 50,000, please contact Corey Mobley to cmobley@txrestaurant.org.

During the ongoing pandemic, the restaurant industry has suffered tremendously. From closures to restrictions, owners and operators have faced numerous challenges. Today, 83% of operators say total labor costs are higher than before the Covid-19 outbreak. The numbers are improving from month to month, but according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, the leisure and hospitality industry in Texas jobs are down by 80,000 since the start of the pandemic. The annual Food in Fashion event is dedicated to raising funds to help the industry’s future workforce and at the same time empower young people.

Proceeds from Food in Fashion will be donated to the Texas Restaurant Foundation, Texas ProStart and other local professional development programs. For more information, visit foodinfashion.org.
