Hey, Mint Fanatics. The EnjoyMint team will be reliving its Project Runway fantasies soon: EnjoyMint is representing the Mint Family as a fashion sponsor in the upcoming Food in Fashion show. For its third year, Food in Fashion will be setting up its runway at The Joule on Monday, March 18, 2019.
If you love fashion, especially homegrown Dallas fashion, come join us for a night of audacious, food-inspired couture. There will be eats prepared by promising young talent from the various culinary schools of Dallas. There will also be a live and silent auction, as well as party beats by Durty Laundry and DJ Mr. Koda. Tickets are available at the Food in Fashion website.
Food in Fashion is designed to build up Dallas’ future culinary and hospitality workforce
Food in Fashion is the brainchild of the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association, the Dallas chapter of the Texas Restaurant Association. The show is designed as a fundraising event that will benefit various programs dedicated to developing careers in the restaurant and hospitality industries of Dallas.
For 2019, most of the proceeds from the Food in Fashion runway show will be used to shore up the Texas Restaurant Association Education Foundation (TRAEF). TRAEF runs ProStart, an educational program that offers culinary courses in public high schools. A part of the proceeds will also be given to El Centro College’s Food and Hospitality Institute, as well as to CitySquare’s WorkPaths Hospitality Training Program.
Witness the extraordinary marriage between food and fashion on March 18
What makes Food in Fashion so different from other fashion shows? The show primarily marries the best of Dallas food with the best of Dallas fashion. The models walk more slowly on the runway to allow the audience to savor their look, just like they would savor good food.
Designers to be featured this year include Audrie Austin, Tatiana Diane, Truanji, Danny Nguyen, and students from El Centro’s Fashion Design. Their creations will be judged by The Joule general manager Kristin Assad, Ben E. Keith CEOs Catherine and Mike Sweet, and Don Morphy Prive Clothiers founder and designer Daniel Mofor.
A highlight of Food in Fashion is the 2019 Ben E. Keith Culinary Competition. In this contest, 15 culinary teams from various Dallas high schools will craft a selection of sweet and savory appetizers. The judging panel for the competition will be made up of Chef Pascal Caye of Lavendou Bistro Provencal, Chef Audrey Priest of Grand Hyatt DFW, and Chef Cassaundra Bayot of Asian Mint.
As mentioned earlier, tickets to the show are available at the Food in Fashion website. Tickets are available in three levels:
- Robuchon tickets are available for $75 and are standing room only.
- Bocuse tickets are priced at $125 and come with reserved seating and a spot at the after-party.
- Escoffier tickets come with reserved seating at the first two rows, a spot at both the pre-show and the after-party, a swag bag, and a $150 price tag.
All ticket holders will get to enjoy drinks and the student-prepared appetizers. They can also participate in the live and silent auctions.
Let’s all celebrate the best of Dallas food and fashion at the Food in Fashion runway show. See y’all there!
