A Peek Inside La Veranda at Hadleigh’s

Gable and Ed Shaikh of Hadleigh’s

We were so excited to catch up with Gable and Ed Shaikh of Hadleigh’s about their newest addition to the Hadleigh’s lifestyle - La Veranda at Highland Park Village.

S&S: What inspired the new space?

Hadleigh’s: It’s called La Veranda at Hadleigh’s. It’s a minimal, modern, elegant space that defines style and artisanal inspiration.

S&S: How is it different from your previous storefront and office? What do you believe it adds or extends to the brand?

Hadleigh’s: This is a Glass Window which an extension to our atelier, allows us to show a Master Tailor (Maestro in a blue lab coat) working and showing an artist detailing a garment. Its shows the sartorial inspiration for the current collection and shows the collection as displayed. 

S&S: How do you see the space being used - how will it be used for your clients?

Hadleigh’s: The clients walk through and see the collection; which inspires them to shop easily.  Also, it’s a display window of all items bespoke and ready to wear from downstairs.

S&S: What’s a typical day like for the both of you?

Hadleigh’s: Our day normally starts at 5:00 am communicating with our Italian office, we take the girls to school. We are usually at the shop by 8:30am. We love to spend time in the shop downstairs changing mannequins and talking about the exciting new clients that came in the day before. Depending on the day and appointments, normally we have inspirational meeting with the staff. Gable and I work together on designing new product and going through new fabrics that have arrived.

We eat lunch together most everyday, usually at Mi Cocina.

I usually spend the rest of the day assisting clients with their H-man wardrobe. Gable spends time at her office off site making sure the shipments have arrived and developing new ideas for the meetings ahead.

S&S: What’s new for Hadleigh’s spring?

Hadleigh’s: A ton of color for both H-Girl and H-Man.  You don’t want to miss: double face cotton bright color jackets and the H-Belt as an accessory.

S&S: What inspired the spring collection?

Hadleigh’s: It’s a specific Hadleigh’s client lifestyle collection and more fun than last season with more accessories.

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.
