DALLAS — “I don’t like too much security,” said Mary Katrantzou, as she urged a technician to ignore the risk of blowing a fuse and add another spotlight to her exhibit at the Dallas Contemporary. “Be brave and fierce.”
It was a particularly apt statement for the designer, who was surrounded by 182 mannequins that embodied her creativity. “Mary, Queen of Prints” celebrates Katrantzou’s 10th anniversary with a retrospective that’s on display through March 18.
