Factory Girl Assembles Fashion, Art, Culture
Rhonda Sargent Chambers goes ‘mod’ for Dallas’ newest vintage boutique. Read on for the designer-splashed details.
Factory Girl represents a fresh and truly unique shopping experience for Dallas. Brand-new at 3005-A Commerce Street in Dallas, the boutique specializes in authentic vintage designer apparel, as well as accessories and home décor. Owners Scogin Mayo and Heather Hayler source their finds through local, national, and international connections and ongoing partnerships.
In other words, starting at $50 per item (heading up to $1,000), shoppers can snag one-of-a-kind finds that no other store in town will have.
Factory Girl’s selection of vintage clothing boasts bold-face names like Halston, Lanvin, Jean Paul Gaultier, Norma Kamali, Oscar de la Renta, Missoni, Diane Von Furstenberg, and many more. Accessories include jewelry, handbags, and sunglasses, along with select furnishings and decorative items for the home.
True to its name – famed pop artist Andy Warhol called his studio ‘The Factory’, and it was known as a gathering place for creative minds – this new store will also host trunk shows and events to introduce up-and-coming talent to the Dallas market. Designers of fashion, furniture, and jewelry, as well as artists from around the globe, are part of the plan. Factory Girl is also one of the featured sponsors of the upcoming Jean Paul Gaultier retrospective at the Dallas Museum of Art.
All this adds up to a fine, fashionable start. Follow Factory Girl on Facebook to stay up-to-date on new arrivals and events, including weekly champagne “Happy Time” every Thursday, starting at 5 p.m.
