DALLAS — Escada loves this city, one of its strongest American markets, and the feeling seems to be mutual.
A four-day trunk show last month racked up $900,000 in bookings, more than double last year’s take. The strong results were partly due to the excitement generated by the full-blown runway show in a tent outside the store in Highland Park Village. Escada skipped the runway show last year in favor of a more subdued party, given the post-9/11 tenor.
