Dallas Celeb Fashion Awards – a star-studded celebration honoring celebrities and designers at the helm of iconic Black brands – will present its inaugural fashion show and awards at The Statler Hotel on Saturday, August 20, 2022. Created by veteran media maven Lisa Stroud, the celebrity clad gala will feature a high-energy fashion show that will spotlight the following legendary brands: Karl Kani, Dapper Dan, FUBU and Baby Phat.
“I created this star-studded event to honor Black celebrities with iconic brands, to showcase Black designers, and to pay homage to fashion icons,” said Dallas Celeb Fashion Awards Creator Lisa Stroud. “Let’s celebrate how they didn’t wait for a seat at the table – they built their own.”
Founders and representatives from each of the afore-mentioned brands are slated for attendance, in addition to surprise celebrity guests in fashion, sports and entertainment who will rock the runway. The event will also pay homage to the late fashion designer Virgil Abloh, as well as to notable fashion editor and globally renowned icon, Andre’ Leon Talley – for all of their contributions to not only fashion, but to the African American community. The Black Diamond Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to NBA Legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson, with additional honors doled out throughout the event. Many other surprises are planned for the larger-than-life event, which is a first-of- its-kind for the city of Dallas.
Doors to the Dallas Celeb Fashion Awards will open at 4pm, with the show beginning promptly at 6pm. Titia Owens and comedian Griff (also Co-Host of Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell) will be the event emcees, with the red carpet hosted by EMMY award-winning host, Ro Parrish. Event proceeds will go to benefit various DFW non-profit organizations specializing in services for the homeless, single mothers, senior citizens, and mental health and awareness.
