Maxine Morgan Trowbridge Founder of PinkMemo said, "We were very excited when W Dallas - Victory asked us to partner with them for FASHION DISH. Bringing leading and emerging designers to Dallas for a luncheon trunk show at Craft Restaurant will provide an intimate setting for guests to dine, shop, and experience a one-on-one conversation with the designer. The event will also support the local retail community with associated boutiques that carry the featured designer. During this tough economy, you need smart marketing, and this series is about collaboration and a prime example of luxury brands collaborating to provide a special experience for its guests."
