Universal Standard in Dallas October 18-21

October 18, 2017

Universal Standard, a size-inclusive brand of fashion-forward, high-quality clothing for women sizes 10-28, will be stopping in Dallas, October 18-21, as part of a two-month, 12-city tour. The Dallas visit will feature an independent trunk show, a model search in partnership with Lions Model Management, pop-up in collaboration with Nordstrom, and the opportunity to meet co-founders Polina Veksler and Alexandra Waldman for personal fittings, style tips, and insight into the brand aesthetic and philosophy.

Oct. 19 – 21

11am – 7pm

Pop-Up at Nordstrom

NorthPark Center

8687 N. Central Expressway

Dallas, TX 75225

The Trunk Show and Nordstrom Pop-Up offers women to see and experience the full collection in person. Exclusive items that are not available to purchase at www.universalstandard.com will be onsite to preview and pre-order. Shoppers can walk out hands free – all items will be delivered directly to the customer. The co-founders will also be in attendance for styling sessions, Q&A’s, and style tips. Plus, there will be a chance to win the new Fall Starter Kit.

The Model Search, in collaboration with New York’s prestigious The Lions modeling agency, will be conducted in each of the twelve cities through open casting call auditions for plus-size models. Looking for new faces and challenging traditional beauty standards, Universal Standard will be searching for women size 10 – 28 for their own future campaign. The chosen candidates will also be flown to New York City to meet with The Lions agency’s top modeling agents. The Lions is built on a non-traditional business model that looks beyond measurements to find clients who have unique qualities and work to develop their profiles. The boutique agency’s clients include Irina Shayk, Kate Upton, Cameron Russell, Stella Maxwell, and Karen Elson.

Fast Company claims that Universal Standard “may have just solved the biggest problem in plus-size fashion.” It has set out to change forever the way women above a certain size are seen – and the way they see themselves by changing the landscape of the plus-size market – a space currently dominating fashion, apparel, and industry news. For instance, Universal Standard is pioneering a program termed “Universal Fit Liberty” that provides size exchanges of items from the brand’s core collection for free within a year of purchase to accommodate women’s never-ending battle with fluctuating weight. The returned items are laundered and donated to charity. Because of this philosophy and the brand’s beautiful designs, Universal Standard has beenfeatured in everything from Vogue, Forbes, WWD, BoF, InStyle, Glamour, and hundreds of other publications.

Equest Gala April 29, 2017

April 29, 2017

Journey into the Field of Dreams at the 2017 Equest Gala, an evening of enchantment, where hope is limitless and dreams can come true. On April 29, Equest will transform the Texas Horse Park into an elegant soiree where supporters, clients, and therapy horses unite to celebrate the achievements of Equest’s 35-year history and to raise money so that Equest can continue its mission to improve lives through the human-horse connection for years to come.

The sumptuous southern chic fundraiser, led by Honorary Co-Chairs Lynn and Allan McBee and Co-Chairs Kathy and Jeromy Fielder, will include gourmet southern cuisine, craft cocktails, live music, and much-desired live and silent auction items.

The night will begin when luxury shuttles stocked with beer and wine bring guests from two locations in the Park Cities and Preston Hollow to Texas Horse Park, 304 acres of whispering windswept prairie grass and the grandeur of century-old “trophy trees” under a vast starlit sky.  It is no wonder the 2017 Equest Gala is themed Field of Dreams.

Upon arrival at Equest at Texas Horse Park, guests will be greeted by the beloved Equest Mini Ambassadors on the red carpet for a paparazzi moment before enjoying a delightful reception of gourmet bites and craft cocktails. Special exhibitions will showcase the exemplary Equest programs and activities, and guests can tour the immaculate stalls and visit the horses to create their own human-horse connection.

A covered barn will be embellished with ferns and moss, magnolias and green apples, and softly lit candles, creating a dreamlike atmosphere to set the stage for an evening of fantasy including a sit-down gourmet dinner, a powerful presentation by Equest, suspenseful live and silent auction, high-energy entertainment, and much dancing.

Equest CEO Lili Kellogg said, “The 2017 Gala is being led by a dream team of two inspirational couples that have great vision, business savvy, and widespread connections. Equest’s 2017 fundraising goal is $300,000 (net), and I’m confident that this powerhouse team will meet if not exceed our expectations. The couples’ magnetism is infectious.”

Recognized as community leaders and philanthropists, the McBees volunteer countless hours of energy, leadership, and time to ensure that Dallas is a world-class city and that the underserved are provided the resources and tools to excel and continue their altruistic mantra. Lynn, a seventh-generation Texan, is CEO of Young Women’s Preparatory Network and serves on over 20 non-profit boards including Bridge Homeless Shelter, Visiting Nurse Association, The Arts Community Alliance (TACA), The Family Place Foundation, AT&T Performing Arts Center, among others, and is a member of numerous organizations. Allan is vice president at McBee Operating Co. and is often seen by Lynn’s side at numerous charitable events.

Kathy is a rising star as a lifestyle expert, an accomplished designer, an entrepreneur of luxurious bedding ensembles sold globally, a television personality on the popular show Designing Texas with Jocelyn White, and a ribbon-winning equestrian with an unbridled passion for horses. In addition to serving as Director of Development on the Board of Equest, Kathy also supports several charities including St. Jude, SPCA, Art for the Heart, and Ahadi Collective. Jeromy is senior vice president of a construction consulting firm who lends deep knowledge and experience. They are proud parents of two children, Isabella and Harrison.

The Equest Gala is made possible by its sponsors including Frontier Communications, Republic Beverage, PaperCity Magazine, and My Sweet Charity.

The 2017 Equest Gala, themed “Field of Dreams,” will be held on Saturday, April 29, starting at 7:00 p.m. at Equest at Texas Horse Park (811 Pemberton Hill Road, Dallas, TX 75217). Sponsorships are available starting at $5,000. Tables (of 10) are available to purchase for $3,000 and individual tickets for $300 at www.equest.org/gala.
