“I am pleased to be chosen as one of the key fashion presenters during this showcase.” explains Kimma Wreh of TeKay Designs.  “I create the type of African-inspired dresses and ethnic bridal gowns that many people don’t get to see.  Dallas Texas is recognized as the ninth-largest city and a highly culturally diverse city in the U.S.  This fashion platform provided the Dallas community an opportunity to experience alternative fashion styles that are accessible here in Texas. That’s why this showcase is so important!  Fashion design and styling is a good example of how people can generate the best ideas when we embrace our cultural differences.” View video highlights of TeKay Designs fashion presentation at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STvU0M1Iz4k
