Fashion's Day in the Park

Last week NorthPark held it’s very own version of “Fashion Week” in tents outside the infamous white building (FYI – Mr. Ray Nasher, the catalyst of NorthPark Center, had the shopping center built in all white brick because according to him, all great buildings are white, and he has a point), hosting dozens of fashion shows. I attended many of them, taking notes on Spring’s saucy styles and must haves. Look for my tips and notes on last week’s shows in the upcoming issues of DallasChild – for both mom and child.

As for my favorite show, it’s hard to beat Barney’s
Simon Doonan, Creative Director of Barney’s New York, and his hilarious commentary on the show’s looks and fashion overall. CH Carolina Herrera had great and easy looks for moms for work, or those days out with the girls. But I can’t not mention Vilebrequin (look for a mention in DC April’s new style section). No surprise that it was about 98% women in that show, and over half of them resorted to fanning themselves (the AC apparently was not working…), and I’ve never heard such loud cheering for models as I did for the little guys that walked the runway. They couldn’t have been more than 5 years old, but they stole the shows from their much older fellow models.

Keep your eyes open for more stories from the fashionable first for Dallas in the months to come!
