Three local favorites according to designer Mary Katrantzou
It’s the final weekend to catch Mary Katrantzou’s exhibition, “Mary, Queen of Prints” at Dallas Contemporary. The retrospective takes a look at the designer’s decade-long career in fashion—filled with color, prints, and pencil skirts. (Meaning, a skirt literally made out of pencils.)
Katrantzou has frequented Dallas, stopping in for trunk shows, art events, and to visit pal Nasiba Adilova (founder of The Tot). So, after her being acquainted with the city, we had to ask: What are a few of your favorite places in the city?
“Bullion, which I love. They’ve done a fantastic job in terms of the interior design and art they’ve put on the walls. They have great attention to detail. Also, the food is so delicious—it’s an international draw.” 400 South Record Street.
“I love vintage shopping, so I love Dolly Python. Last time we went, it was raining so hard, and we got stuck there for three hours! Needless to say, the bill was not what we had in mind going in, but we got some amazing pieces.” 1916 North Haskell Avenue.
“I think the garden at Nasher Sculpture Center is beautiful. I want to take my parents when they’re here.” 2001 Flora Street.
The Details: Dallas Contemporary, 161 Glass Street. “Mary, Queen of Prints” on view through March 18. Free admission.
