Fashion at the Park began on Friday, with a big moment: Roberto Cavalli made a personal appearance at his runway show and the opening bash. While I didn’t attend that (Kristin Hull did and I am sure she will be giving a report), I was lucky enough to be invited to the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America)/Vogue Dinner at The Mansion following the show on Saturday night at NorthPark. Guests mingled with some of the fashions top talents including Georgina Chapman and Karen Craig of Marchesa, Peter Som, and Thakoon Panichgul. I was lucky enough to sit at a table with Thakoon and Douglas Little (of D.L. & Co.), who has a tent on display at FATP featuring his gothic goodies (think: black wax-covered mannequins, skull candles, a fountain filled with dark red “Black Dahlia” perfume, and other creative curiosities), which can be found at many local stores including Barneys and The Nasher Store. Little mentioned that he may plant some roots in Dallas due to how well-received he is in the city (he had a hand in the design of new hotspot, PM at The Joule). Thakoon, on the other hand, had his first experience in Dallas and didn’t care for the drive from the airport (who can blame him?), but he did love NorthPark, Mi Cocina, and The Mansion.
