The Career Achievement Awards go to: Terri Provencal –
Media. With a media career that spans more than 20 years, Terri has
been a significant media maven, launching multiple publications in
Texas, and is also an inspiring philanthropist in the community. As
Group Publisher for Modern Luxury Media, Terri launched Modern
Luxury Dallas and started ML’s Houston publication, along with
Dallas Brides and Dallas Interiors. Today FGI Dallas is proud to recognize
Terri—founder, publisher, and editor-in-chief of Patron magazine—
for making Dallas shine. Sue Wade of Wade College. As founder
and executive director Wade established the Dallas merchandising
school in 1962. Lela Rose – Fashion Design. The Manhattan-based designer grew up in Dallas, so it makes perfect sense that the
launch of her flagship boutique would be in Highland Park Village.
“When we were planning our first retail store (in Dallas, of course!), I
was so amazed by the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge as it was being built.
I’ve long been a fan of Santiago Calatrava, and the Fall 2012 collection takes its cues from his linear labyrinths, cable stayed bridges, and
his poetics of motion.” Rose holds rank with every major New York
designer, and you’ll find her collections on the runway at New York
Fashion Week twice a year and in stores, such as Neiman Marcus and
Bergdorf Goodman, and across the globe in spots such as Moscow,
Kuwait, Indonesia, Turkey, and Qatar.
The philanthropic Fashion Police will kick off the award gala as
they strut the runway styled by NorthPark Center. Watch for fash-
ions from Nha Khanh and Cassie Bumpous, ending with a grand
finale show by Lela Rose. Tickets: (214) 634-0204, FGIdallas-staff@
sbcglobal.net, or fashiongroup.eventbrite.com. Information: dallas-
careerday.org and dallas.fgi.org.
