I hope you'll join me as I host this fun and fashionable night in the heart of downtown at the ultra-posh and sleek art gallery Life In Deep Ellum. Joining me will be celebrity guest, HGTV Design Star Hilari Younger who will reveal her new home interiors line.  Although fashion is the main attraction, the purpose of this event has a much deeper significance.

The aim of the event is to create visibility and financial support for the Baylor Health Care System Foundation, while keeping organ donation a relevant conversation. The event, benefiting Baylor Health Care System Foundation is the brainchild of Dallas based fashion entrepreneur and transplant survivor, Shamequia Cason.

"Trend Next features the hottest fashions and interiors born in Dallas and this year, I am looking to expose how the event is shifting into a community recognized organization in support of charity,” said Cason. A recipient of a kidney transplant, Cason suffered from kidney disease for 9 years - 5 of those years was as a dialysis patient - and was featured in Baylor Hospital’s promotional campaigns.

“Trend Next started off as my story but now it belongs to the world. That is why the Artistic Value of Trend Next 2013 is so important to reveal the many talents that all of us possess as a collective unite. If we are going to keep the “next” thing in mind, we have to think ahead. The Artistic Value being the catalyst to bringing Dallas together, raises awareness for the Baylor Health Care System, kidney disease and organ donation, I am excited!”
