Fashion X Dallas // NOIR is seeking apparel designers to show runway collections on September 30, 2017. Both emerging designers and established labels are invited to apply.

Designers may show any season, but we recommend showing product that is for Fall 2017 (immediates) or Spring 2017 (many designers split their show between seasons). Fashion X Dallas markets to buyers and media as well as directly to the end consumer, so looks that are readily available are useful.

NOIR will feature a unique non-stop runway concept. Each designer will show 12 looks at the same time on an 80-foot raised runway. All 12 models will be choreographed to your choice of music over a full 8-minute presentation.

Capsule designers will show 3-look capsule collections in the same format through an approximate 2-minute presentation.

Up to 15 full runway collections will be accepted and up to 16 capsule collections through a juried process.

Please read the information below carefully and then apply for the appropriate runway shows.


Applications to participate in Fashion X Dallas // NOIR are due by August 15, 2017 or until all spots have been filled. Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received, so it is beneficial to complete your application early. There are no fees to apply.

The FXD Advisory Board will review each application and provide each brand with a yes, no or waitlist answer. Those that receive a yes answer will be billed for participation. All fees are due no later than August 22, 2017.


Upon approval by the board, you will be sent a contract to be executed by both parties. Once under contract, you may not be released for any reason and you will be billed for the appropriate participation fees. The fee may be split into multiple payments but final fees are due by August 22, 2016.
