Fashion Group International of Dallas Announces Annual Night of Stars Gala and

Internationally Acclaimed Designer Zac Posen as Honored Guest


Nonprofit Marks its 65th Year


(DALLAS) July 28, 2014 – Fashion Group International of Dallas (FGI Dallas) today announces its annual Night of Stars Gala will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday, November 14th at the Fashion Industry Gallery.


Zac Posen, internationally celebrated fashion designer and founder of Zac Posen, will be presented with the Career Achievement in Fashion award.  Ken Downing, Neiman Marcus Fashion Director, will present the award on behalf of FGI Dallas.


Born in New York City, Posen burst onto the New York fashion scene in 2001. Celebrities and fashionistas alike were buzzing with anticipation of his designs even before his first fashion show. Today he is one of the world’s coveted designers with A-list celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow, Uma Thurman and Claire Danes strutting his one-of -a-kind designs on the red carpet.


2014 has been an exciting year for Posen with the launch of his first bridal collection, Truly Zac Posen, sold exclusively at David’s Bridal; his new appointment as creative director for Brooks Brothers women’s wear and accessories; and most recently, the launch of his new men’s and women’s eyewear collection that will be in stores this coming fall. He is also returning as a judge for the 13th season of the Lifetime network’s Project Runway.


“With this year being FGI Dallas’ 65th anniversary, we are thrilled to honor Zac Posen with this prestigious honor and also mark this special milestone in our history,” said Chuck Steelman, Regional Director of FGI Dallas.


Last year FGI Dallas presented the Career Achievement in Fashion award to fashion designer Billy Reid. 


Individual tickets are available for purchase as well as a select number of Standard Tables, Runway Tables, three VIP Runway Tables and one ultra-exclusive Platinum Level Table. Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite at

Proceeds from the event fund FGI Dallas’ foundation scholarships.
