Much-anticipated among shoppers with each new season, the stunning display windows at Dallas designer resale emporium Clotheshorse Anonymous often showcase the sculptures of Celesta Segerstrom of Paint Pot & Pen. Through the years, we’ve seen couture recreated in recycled materials, for example, and a three-dimensional homage to Jean Paul Gaultier.
Debuting this week, Segerstrom’s Summer 2012 windows represent a tribute to former Harpers Bazaar fashion editor and Vogue editor-in-chief Diana Vreeland. Developed in collaboration with Clotheshorse’s own Julie Hogg, the inspiration began with one of the featured films at this year’s Dallas International Film Festival.
“I fell in love with Vreeland after seeing her on screen in Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel,” explained Hogg. “Celesta Segerstrom and I then started combing through vintage covers of the publications she presided over all those years. I wanted to give a nod to Twiggy, as well as to the ‘20s and ‘30s when Diana was living in France.”
You can glimpse a sneak preview here today, but we recommend a stop at Clotheshorse Anonymous (11661 Preston Road, Dallas) to view these gorgeous windows up close and in person.
