When two designing women join forces in fashion, magic can happen. Global success stories like Marchesa and Rodarte prove this axiom to be true, and one such duo is fast on the rise in Dallas. Is Tinsley Radix on your radar? If not, consider this your call to action.
By way of back story, Tinsley Radix equals an original women’s wear brand by Caitlyn Mullanix and Chelsea Brogdon (pictured above). The friends and business partners’ names may ring a bell, owing to their Dallas Design District boutique, Chantilly, which bowed in September of 2013. We covered that opening here at DFW Style Daily, including an early hint at the ladies’ goal to offer an original line in addition to their selection of national labels. “We want each person who walks out of our store to feel completely comfortable and confident in our clothes,” said Brogdon of the plan.
Fast forward to the present year, and Tinsley Radix launched in January at an RSC Show-helmed professional runway event. As models walked in Mullanix and Brogdon’s debut collection, a sold-out audience thrilled to their sophisticated Southern aesthetic. By design, the line focuses on gowns, dresses, and separates that transcend trend to become beloved style mainstays.
A second runway show in August of this year reinforced our initial positive reaction to Tinsley Radix. The sophomore collection again reflected appealing regional influences – Texas, Georgia, New Mexico – and multi-season versatility. We noted beautiful construction, as well, utilizing fine fabrics.
But you don’t have to take our word for it. After the photos herein whet your wardrobe appetite, consider a visit to Chantilly at 1130 Dragon Street in the Dallas Design District to explore Tinsley Radix. The line is also available through its e-commerce site.
On a parting note, alongside ready-to-wear and couture creations, Mullanix and Brogdon are currently featuring two Susan G. Komen benefit tops in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (pictured above). As seen in The Gloss and Star Magazine, 30% of the proceeds from these lovely looks benefit the cause.
