Fashion Event open to UNT students - DRESSED regional screening premiere, designers Nary Manivong & Ally Hilfiger in town

El Centro College is hosting the screening of DRESSED, which chronicles Nary’s own struggle from homelessness to the runway, because his personal story reflects many El Centro fashion design and fashion marketing students who, like Nary, come from racially diverse heritages and economically challenged backgrounds, yet somehow manage to succeed in the incredibly competitive fashion industry. Invited by Wade Hyde, faculty of El Centro College, “I wanted to make sure North Texas fashion students were aware that El Centro College is hosting the regional premiere screening of the documentary film DRESSED at the Texas Theatre in Dallas this Friday, October 28, at 8:00 p.m”.

DRESSED tells the compelling “rags to runways” saga of hot, new fashion designer Nary Manivong, who was homeless at age 14 but managed to somehow move to New York and eventually show his line during New York Fashion Week. Nary and his new NAHM design partner Ally Hilfiger (Tommy Hilfiger’s daughter) just got great reviews a few weeks ago at New York’s Fall Fashion Week. Both Nary and Ally will be in town for the DRESSED screening event, which is open to the public.
