This week, FGI of Dallas will bring a taste of Georgia to the Big D! Founded six years ago in Atlanta, Georgia by Sid and Ann Mashburn, fashion destination Ann Mashburn is an immersive shopping experience for both men and women. The stylish duo will be making a stop right here in Dallas at their Knox St. store tomorrow, Oct. 4 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for a special discussion on their history in the fashion business and how they came together to create the store. Stop by in person to see their preppy chic style in person!
The fashionable duo met in New York in the early ‘80s after Sid spent time designing at J. Crew, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Lands’ End. In search of the kind of retail they’d seen in Europe and Asia, fashion destinations with experiences rather than just shops, him and Anne decided to open up a different kind of shop. Ann, the perfect match for the design savvy Sid, was on the editorial side at Condé Nast and served as an assistant and editor at both Vogue and Glamour.
With a deep love for not only finding and creating great products but making a personal connection, Sid and Ann have a knack for giving customers the perfect fashion experience. They were those friends of yours who always made mix tapes and threw the best parties. What they call a simple concept can be quite hard to execute, but the duo has managed to do it quite well since the opening of their store on the west side of Atlanta in 2007. After all, Sid and Ann have over 50 years in the fashion industry between them. With men’s and women’s stores in Atlanta, River Oaks in Houston), in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC, and on Knox St. in Dallas, the couple offers their favorite things in person and online to customers all over the world.
Admission is free for members of FGI of Dallas. For non-members, tickets can be purchased online here for $20-25. The Mashburn’s Dallas store location, where the event will be held, is located at 3319 Knox St.
