Meet the Fresh Faces of Fashion for 2012

Yvonne Crum, creator of the Fresh Faces of Fashion program and her BFF and usual partner-in-crime, Jill Rowlett, held court this past Tuesday at Dee Lincoln's Bubble Bar to the debut of the new crop of beauties who will hold the title for 2012.

Modern Luxury reveals the "Fresh Faces of Fashion"

So, what the heck does it mean to be a FFF and how are they chosen?

Over the past several months, Modern Luxury magazine has been collecting nominations for the program. One has to be not only stylish on the outside, but be able to serve up a dossier of charitable works and contributions to the community at large.

The 12 women selected to represent the program serve as stylish ambassadors to raise awareness and much needed funds to benefit the North Texas Suicide and Crisis Center.
