When we think the epitome and hub of all things fashion, we think New York City. The bustling lights. The cranky people. The land of opportunity. Fashion seems to ooze out of the “big apple.” It might surprise you, though, to hear that the fashion scene in Dallas is booming. When people think of Dallas, they tend to think brisket, cowboy hats, spurs and bull riding. If you want to stay up to date, and not continue defining Dallas with the old “yee-haw” cowboy stereotypes, then go check out these Instagram accounts.
