This past Tuesday night, the Fashion Group International Rising Star Awards were hosted at the Galleria, Dallas, TX. Categories for the FGI Rising Star included fashion designer, interior designer, fashion blogger, photographer, and makeup artistry. Each nominee was asked to showcase their work, and during the cocktail hour, guests walked around perusing the different installations. A runway fashion show was put on by the fashion designer nominees with a pop-up runway followed by the awards ceremony where the winners were announced and recognized.
Kathy Fielder, nominee for an interior designer, created her space using unique pieces that represent all aspects of lifestyle.
One of the requirements for the interior designers, using a magazine to express something uniquely you. KF hand designed this chair, and this piece truly was the focus of her design space.
