DALLAS — Narciso Rodriguez got star treatment when he presented his spring collection here in his first runway showoutside of New York.
His hosts, retailers Brian Bolke and Bill Mackin of Forty Five Ten, threw a benefit bash Oct. 27 in an eye-popping 1962 home by Philip Johnson that drew this city’s chicest party hoppers and celebrities. They came to watch Rodriguez’s spring collection modeled on a dramatic stage: a cream-carpeted swirling double staircase backed by a wall of curved glass, with a series of tall white arches visible beyond. Each look was finished with a seven-to-12 carat diamond ring, courtesy of Bachendorf’s jeweler and A Diamond Is Forever, the marketing arm of the Diamond Trading Co.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
