Featuring Special Guest
Founder, New Orleans Fashion Week
A native of St. Martinville, Louisiana, Dundas fell in love with fashion during a modeling class her mother signed her up for at the age of 14. After studying apparel design at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, she dreamed of joining the New York fashion scene, but didn’t have the funds.
Instead, Dundas worked as an account executive at Phillip Morris until the day her boss saw her in a fashion magazine. “They didn’t like that I was moonlighting and decided to release me,” she says. “It was actually a gift. My heart was never there.”
Freed from the corporate world, Dundas went on to create her own successful model and talent management company, About Faces, and worked as a stylist, dressing clients including Michael Jordan and Drew Brees.
Dundas is now known, however, as the founder of New Orleans Fashion Week. Inspired by Fashion Week New York, the five-day event each spring showcases southern-based talent through over 50 runway shows and provides ample opportunities for young designers to get their start. Attendance has continued to grow since the first event in 2011, with this past March’s audiences reaching over 500 guests per night. Read More.
