DALLAS — It seems that whenever a high-profile event is scheduled here, Mother Nature greets the visitors with a winter storm that shuts down power and blankets roads in treacherous ice. It happened during the NCAA Basketball Tournament in 2010 and Super Bowl XLV in 2011, and now Friday morning's ice storm has thrown a snow shovel into preparations for Chanel's Métiers d'Art show set for Tuesday evening at Fair Park.
Members of the Chanel team staying at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek lost power for most of Friday, while some were evacuated from the Joule Hotel after an electrical fire out front on Main Street. Others at the Rosewood Crescent Hotel temporarily lost Internet service. Numerous flight cancellations can't be helping, either.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
