Dior Opens New Boutique and Exhibition with Patrick Demarchelier in Dallas

“I create so that each and every woman is the most beautiful.”  - Christian Dior

On March 23rd, the Christian Dior boutique will open at Highland Park Village in Dallas. The new boutique offers a sophisticated shopping environment and combines 18th century detail with modern elements to create an aesthetic that reflects the traditional yet modern elegance of the house of Dior.  

To celebrate the Dallas opening, Dior has partnered with French fashion photographer, Patrick Demarchelier, to create an exhibition titled: Dior Couture Patrick Demarchelier. “A fashion photographer’s job is to create dreams, but Dior Haute Couture is already a dream,” said photographer Patrick Demarchelier. The photographs in the exhibition were taken over a two-year period and pay tribute to the collections of the House of Dior from 1947 to present day.

The world of Dior Haute Couture is highlighted by six emblematic themes: the Dior Line, the Dior Garden, the Dior Ateliers, the 18th Century, From Pink to Red, and the Dior Ball. ”Dior Couture Patrick Demarchelier” focuses on these themes of the house and highlights a dress within each.

  To learn more about Dior Couture Patrick Demarchelier please visit the exhibition at the temporary art gallery in the Highland Park Village from March 22nd-April 19th.

Style Card: Kersten Rettig

Kersten Rettig, Chief Marketing Officer for Highland Park Village


For our very first Style Card profile, we loved sitting down with Highland Park Village’s Chief Marketing Officer, Kersten Rettig, to learn more about some of her favorite places in Dallas, what she loves most about her job, and travel plans on her calendar for 2013 (*hint: they speak French).

Style & Social: What’s a day in the life like for Kersten Rettig?

Kersten: Long!  Mornings are busy with kids and dogs but I make it into the office between 8:30 and 9 and work like a maniac all day on everything from creating the Highland Park Village Magazine to working with local philanthropies on events to buying media. You might think I could shop during the day but I never do. (I wish!) My day ends with a class at the Bar Method several times a week.  I love to cook so I prepare dinner for my family at least five nights a week. I’m lights out by ten pm sharp.


Style & Social: Where is your favorite place in the world to travel?

Kersten: I love to travel and am always happier when I have reservations booked to go somewhere.  My favorite destination is Europe. I’m spending a week in Paris in June - cannot wait!


Style & Social: If you could live anywhere in the world besides Dallas – where would it be and why?

Kersten: I’ve lived in Plymouth, Mass., Ft. Worth, St. Louis, New York (Manhattan and Brooklyn), Ft. Lauderdale, Houston and Orange County, California - I don’t plan on relocating again!  I feel most at home in Dallas but I would love to live in Chianti, Italy where I would grow my own vegetables, make artisanal cheese and drink great wine.


Style & Social: What has been the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Kersten: Creating.  I love to create – to see my ideas come to life is a lot of fun. I greatly appreciate the creativity and artistry of fashion designers and draw inspiration from their creativity.


Style & Social: What do you love most about Highland Park Village?

Kersten: It is a very special, unique place. It’s just beautiful to look at, for one thing.  And I love that Highland Park Village has been a huge part of people’s lives for 82 years. I’ve heard so many great stories from people who grew up going to the record store and the barber shop and the restaurants here – it’s living history.



Style & Social: What is your go-to fragrance?

Kersten: Jo Malone’s Vanilla and Anise


Style & Social: Your ideal night out in Dallas?

Kersten: It’s actually a night IN.  I love to cook and entertain so my ideal night is preparing a great meal for friends at my house and listening to music. I’m also a big fan of game night (dorky, I know!).  My husband and I enjoy date nights a few times a month at the many great restaurants in Dallas.


Style & Social: Favorite lunch or dinner spot:

Kersten: The Mansion Restaurant is still my favorite dinner spot.  I adore the wait staff there (Hi Zeke and Hugo!) and think Bruno Davaillon is a genius. I eat Mi Cocina for lunch at least once a week – I crave it.


Style & Social: Three things that mean the most to you:

Kersten: My children, my husband and my faith.
