Models stampede the runway at Fair Park in Dallas, Texas for Chanel's Metiers d'Art Pre-Fall 2014 Show
As a born and raised Texan, I was thrilled (and a bit confused at first) that Uncle Karl and his Chanel crew descended up upon Dallas, Texas last night for the French fashion house's Metiers d'Art Pre-Fall 2014 show. This event is probably the biggest, most important and most epic thing to happen in the Dallas fashion scene in decades!
Chanel's Metiers d'Art show travels each year to a city that is important to the brands history such as Tokyo, New York City and London. Lagerfeld chose Dallas for this years show because Dallas-based luxury retailer (also a sister store to Bergdorf Goodman) Neimen Marcus played a vital role in Chanel's return after Coco reopened her Paris Couture house in 1954. It was closed when Europe entered World War II (Oh, now this all makes sense).
The clothing for each Metiers d'Art collection pays homage to each geographical location so as you would expect, the Dallas show had a "Cowboys and Indians" vibe to it. It makes sense as the 90's are going strong that fashion is now heading into trends from the early 2000's (Remember in '02-'03 when denim and western was all the rage). Check out the gorgeous designs and photos from the THREE PART event below!
Disclaimer: I wanted to look at this collection and quote Kerry Washington in Save the Last Dance, "It's country and you look country in it," but I fell in love with so many of the looks! The menswear in this collection is SICK! As Tim McGraw puts it, "I guess that's just the cowboy in me."
