Designer of the Iconic Wrap Dress Comes to Highland Park Village
DALLAS, TX – May, 2010 – She’s in the pages of WWD almost every day, and now one of the premier names in American fashion will open her tenth USA boutique in Highland Park Village this September. The 1500 square foot Diane von Furstenberg store will carry the full line of the luxury lifestyle brand including ready-to-wear, swimwear, handbags, footwear, eyewear and accessories. DVF will sit two doors down from Christian Louboutin, between Vilebrequin and Carolina Herrera on the west side of the center.
Diane von Furstenberg catapulted on to the fashion scene in 1972 with her design of the classic wrap dress and can now only be described as a true industry icon. “A DVF boutique is a natural fit in Highland Park Village due to the popularity of the brand and the designer’s overall commitment to women through fashion and philanthropy.” says Stephen Summers, Partner and Director of Leasing. “Giving our shoppers more options by offering a relevant mix of retailers and adding to the charm of shopping here are goals we seek to achieve with every lease we sign.”
Highland Park Village is a favorite among locals, as it has been for generations. Built in 1931 and widely regarded as the country’s first true shopping center, the Village is internationally recognized for its architectural significance and mix of the world’s best-known upscale retailers including Carolina Herrera, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Harry Winston, Hermès and Tory Burch. It is a treasured part of the community and offers several annual events including the Village Holiday event and horse-drawn carriage rides each winter. In 2000, Highland Park Village was named a National Historic Landmark. Highland Park Village Gift Cards are available for purchase by calling 214.443.9898. Complimentary valet parking is available.
