Each week, DFW Style Daily reveals the fashion fixations of our city’s top trendsetters.
Today, Terri Provencal, founder of Patron Magazine and Provencal Consulting Group, shares a stylishly curated collection.
So, what’s keeping Terri Provencal occupied this pre-holiday season? The media maven is obsessed with all things art-related, including the DMA’s brand-new Jean Paul Gaultier retrospective. You’re also likely to spot Terri scoping sophisticated pieces at Stanley Korshak – but her list doesn’t end there.
1. Jay Maggio’s Luscious
“I was completely enraptured after receiving a postcard image of this painting,” Terri says of her favorite work of art by Dallas-based painter Jay Maggio. She wasted no time, snapping up the piece later that very day. Additional works by Maggio are available for view and purchase at Craighead Green Gallery (1011 Dragon St., Dallas).
2. Patron Magazine
Our expert launched her latest passion project earlier this month at a polished party at The Rotunda at Chase Tower. The guest list included a who’s who of the Dallas art set, including singer Mina Chang and Jordan Roth of Ro2 Art. Of Patron, Terri explains, “Working on this magazine sends me over the moon with regards to the talented people living and working here, contributing to our exceptional arts scene.”
3. Rachel Zoe’s Cropped Leather Jackets
The stylish shop girls at Stanley Korshak’s The Shak warned Terri that this luxe piece of buttery-soft black leather outerwear ($550) would soon become her addiction. “They were right,” the new Zoe devotee confesses. “You may need to peel it off of me!”
4. The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk
This art-lover admits to sharing a fixation with every fashionista in town – the Jean Paul Gaultier retrospective at the DMA. She calls the “theatrical and high-tech fashion” installation a must-see, adding, “I will be going several times to take it all in. The genius, the ‘enfant terrible,’ is impeccably captured in this provocative exhibit.”
5. Barbara Daseke and Janet Pollman Kafka
Daseke, an interior designer, and Kafka, the Honorary Consul of Spain, are both leading art patrons, and Terri finds each woman truly inspirational. She says, “I admire them both tremendously. Their enthusiasm and intelligence drives many to support cultural organizations and celebrate what we have in our own back yard.”
