Designer Mary Katrantzou Honored At Dallas Contemporary

By Lance Avery Morgan    Photography by Bruno

THE SCENE: It was a colorful night in Dallas, more vibrant than usual, when a mix of social luminaries and art lovers gathered for a night of fashion, art and fun. At the event, 100 guests enjoyed a multi-course, seated dinner catered by Neiman Marcus as they toasted the exhibition “Mary, Queen of Prints,” which showcased a selection of archival pieces assembled into one impressive tableau.

THE VIBE: Georgina Hartland invited friends to the colorful celebration to close out the first solo exhibition of the incredibly talented designer, Mary Katrantzou. The Greek-bred designer, by way of London, loves Dallas and especially loved this retrospective exhibit of her multi-colored fashion design career. In fact, the 180-piece show was timed to the designer’s own 10th anniversary.

When she debuted in the 2000s, her digitally printed textiles were an immediate rage. To stage the exhibition, we learned the museum removed its interior walls for the first time in about a decade. The dresses are arranged on mannequins that stand on color-coordinating hexagonal plinths.

We love that the exhibition was such a hit that Katrantzou confided it’s influencing her upcoming Fall ’18 collection and even moreso the Spring ’19 collection that will follow it.

THE CAUSE: Dallas Contemporary is a non-collecting art museum presenting new and challenging ideas from regional, national and international artists. The institution is committed to engaging the public through exhibitions, lectures, educational programs, and events.
