Rebecca Taylor is taking a measured approach to company-owned retail. The New Zealand-born designer on Thursday unveiled her eighth store, a 1,800-square-foot unit at NorthPark Center in Dallas.
It will be the last store opening for a while, said the designer, who's known for her romantic aesthetic filtered through a sophisticated lens. "To stay profitable, we want to keep the store count tight," Taylor said. "Who can tell what's going to be happening in the next few years, politically or otherwise?"
