A pop-up showcasing more than a dozen designers of color is hitting the runway this weekend at the Galleria.

The pop-up, which runs from noon to 6 p.m. through Sunday, features women’s clothing, menswear, jewelry, beauty products and home decor. The designers, who are Black, indigenous or people of color, will be on site to talk about their work.

Participating Dallas designers are Sai Sankoh, Dawn Franklin, Daniel Mofor and Serita Jakes, the wife of Bishop T.D. Jakes.

The event is organized by Frenchye Harris, who founded the Black Fashion Movement during Black History Month last year. The Black Fashion Movement  is designed to connect emerging Black designers with trend-conscious shoppers in a luxury retail experience.

“The unavailability of Black-owned brands and products that serve the African-American community is profoundly impacting the African-American path to purchase” Harris said in a statement. “Creating in-store opportunities for Black customers to touch, feel and try new products while shopping could be essential to building long-term loyalty.”
