The Fashionistas and CultureMap Dallas are presenting an evening packed with festivity and elegant looks from two rising Dallas designers. The creations of Lucy Dang and Danh Ta will be on display at tomorrow night’s Fashion Friday at Fedora in the One Arts Plaza, 8 to 10 p.m. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org, and raise a glass to high style!
Started by college buddies Gerard Maione and Seth Weisser, the chic Soho boutique called What Goes Around Comes Around offers vintage fashions from decades past. With some garments dating back to the 1860s, these men have one of the most sought-after old-world fashion collections in the industry, and they’ve decided to share it with always fashionable Dallas in the form of a Chanel trunk show. Come out today through May 19 to Scoop NYC in Highland Park Village, where WGACA will unveil some vintage pieces from the label.
Expect to see the famed Chanel 2.55 bag along with other chic designs from The House of Coco and mingle amongst the crème de la crème of Dallas fashion lovers. Meantime, chickadee, make you sure you gather up the change from your car seats, couch cushions and that one cup holder, because vintage Chanel comes at a price. But, truly, can you put a price on owning history? Exactly. Keep in mind that the trunk show lasts the duration of store hours each day — hope to see you there.
The British are coming, the British are coming! No need to grab your musket and lantern, though, but you’ll definitely need your wallet and sense of style, as London chic realness is about to invade our very own Big D. Aftershock London opens the doors to its very first US store, at Dallas’ Plaza at Preston Center with apparel and accessories fit for a (fashion) queen. With more than 100 stores in the U.K., Aftershock London seems a great addition to Dallas’ trend-setting cadre of fashion retailers.
With 20 years of British branding behind them, Aftershock London offers an innovative style that stays on the cutting edge, and its flair for European color-blocking as well as ornate accessories is its calling card. In addition to stocking whimsical ball gowns fit for a prom queen, Aftershock abounds with finely detailed casual dresses, tops and handbags. Savvy fashionistas would do well to load up on threads from Aftershock London, but don’t take my word for it. The British invasion happens today!
Spring is hitting Dallas with a SPLASH — of color, that is.
Designer Timo Weiland is unveiling his spring and summer 2013 line at the Snider Plaza’s Piermarini Boutique. Nebraska-born Weiland has always been art-inclined, showing an interest in photography, sketching and painting. With his fashions being sold on Style.com and a feature story in Forbes, Weiland is quickly becoming a breakout star in the fashion world.
Rich in chic patterns and bold prints, Timo Weiland’s apparel delves into a nautical and mosaic style for this season’s trendy looks. Black and white colorblocking characterizes the men’s collection, as Weiland uses urban-influenced jackets and sport-styled shorts to rock this seasons runway. The schoolboy trend of matching cardigan with a crisp cotton short is put together flawlessly in Weiland’s men’s line. He even allows pops of brightness in his men’s wear, as bold oranges and blue make cameo appearances throughout.
Women get even more color in the spring/summer collection. Missoni-inspired printed dresses are elegant in their flowing and breezy nature. Weiland mixes up his women’s wear with gothic-infused tailoring and trends.
But seeing is believing: Come join the designer himself for a night filled with food, fashion and fun from 3 to 6 p.m. this Saturday, May 11, at Piermarini Boutique. Get up and personal with Timo and his fierce fashions.
