Fashion Group International of Dallas assembled a group of industry titans on Friday night for its annual Night of Stars Gala, presented by Mary Kay. Hosted at The Ritz-Carlton’s ballroom in Dallas, Texas, the award ceremony and dinner honored ELLE editor-in-chief Nina Garcia, designer Christian Siriano, model and activist Bethann Hardison, and artist Ashley Longshore.
Garcia received the Excellence in Media award, which was presented to her by Fern Mallis. Hardison was given the Lifetime Legacy award by Tyson Beckford, while Siriano was honored with the Achievement in Fashion award by Alicia Silverstone. Longshore was presented the Exuberance in Art award by Charlotte Jones.
The evening started with champagne before attendees gathered for dinner, awards, and a live auction. The auction—featuring tickets to Siriano’s 2024 New York Fashion Week show and the opportunity to commission a work of art by Longshore—raised more than $100,00 for the Fashion Group Foundation of Dallas, which awards scholarships to students every year at the FGI of Dallas Scholarship Competition. After-show cocktails ended the illustrious night, with DJ B presiding over tunes.
