An exhibit at the Galleria Dallas mall is poised to take us back to the ’80s, which surely has to be preferable to the hellish landscape we’ve endured in the 2020s.
Called “She’s Got the Look,” the exhibit will display more than 50 fashions by some of that decade’s most outrageous designers, with everything from Madonna’s Material Girl-era black lace to the power looks of ’80s TV show Dynasty.
The show is curated by Ken Weber, owner of Martini Consignment, the vintage store on Henderson Avenue, and will run from March 5-April 3. It’ll occupy the space next door to Sephora that was most recently home to the Snowday holiday experience.
Designers featured include quintessential ’80s names such as Thierry Mugler, Oscar de la Renta, Yves Saint Laurent, Bob Mackie, Emanuel Ungaro, Halston, and Geoffrey Beene.
The exhibition will be divided into two sections:
- a main room showcasing elegance and extravagance with party, red-carpet, Ladies Who Lunch and Working Girl attire
- a second room featuring “Valley Girls,” “Rocker Chicks,” “Club Kids,” and menswear
