From under the big top

Entering the tent Friday morning, it was clear that I had a full and exciting day ahead. The first show was Nordstrom, and boy did they do it right: 90 different looks featuring nine of their top designer labels. In one of the cleverest marketing moves I’ve seen, Nordstrom left cards on the seats inviting spectators to collect their gift bags inside the store and to preview the collection. For most, this meant starting the day by shopping the shows.

At noon, we were all stunned by the spectacle of the Oscar de la Renta spring and summer collection. Perhaps the most “New York” of the shows, ODLR is best described as being feminine couture, and who better to close the show than supermodel Erin Wasson.

Vilebrequin, the high-end men’s swimsuit line, mixed über-buff men with darling little boys in matching swim trunks, giving the show a light, fun feel.

Being new to Dallas, it was a complete surprise that MNG by Mango was so chic. This line is perfect for the fashionista on a budget, and as an added bonus the clothes actually last.

Ted Baker was fresh and bright, but the event of the day was Intermix. The Intermix show was standing room only and didn’t disappoint. From white Chloe boots to sexy little dresses, Intermix could do no wrong. Leaving the show everyone felt energized, including the models.

The night came to a close with after-parties all over town. It’s a good thing that there were only two shows, with the invitation-only dinner on Saturday.
