Fashion becomes intoxicating on Saturday, August 25, 2007 when Mockingbird Station, the pioneer of mixed-used developments in Texas, will host its inaugural Flirt Fashion Show.

The event will kick off at 3 p.m. with a luxury car show and live music featuring the Rhythms, Intake, 1000 Miles from Home, The Salutation and We Heart the Violence. Festivities culminate at 8:15 p.m. with a fashion show debuting the hottest fall styles. Other event activities will include image consultant-led shopping tours, as well as a VIP after party at Trinity Hall Irish Pub. Special customer discounts and promotional offers will be available throughout the day from participating restaurants and retailers.
