ODP Trunkshow at Stanley Korshak
A huge Texas-size thank you to Stanley Korshak in Dallas for hosting two beautiful events last week!
Having lived in Dallas for two years while completing the MBA / MA program at Southern Methodist University, the Big D always holds a special place in my heart. I was thrilled when Stanley Korshak selected the ODP FW17 collection for their store.
Stanley Korshak, an institution for Dallas shoppers with its highest level of customer service, is Dallas's premier shopping destination located in the courtyard of shops at the Crescent Hotel in Uptown. Dallas oil heiress Caroline Rose Hunt opened Stanley Korshak as a designer clothing store in 1986, and the store has been managed by Crawford Brock since 1987.
As I was coming through Texas in August, we decided it was a perfect opportunity to introduce the collection in person with some in-store events. We started the morning with a storewide introduction to their beyond-chic sales associates (many of whom I already had "met" through Instagram as they had posted photos of the collection... we love to see that excitement over our bags!)
Tanya Foster, a native Texan, actress, and lifestyle blogger, hosted a beautiful luncheon with some of Dallas's leading ladies, including Courtney Kerr of Kerrently and Lynsey Eaton of Tomboy KC. The luncheon was held in the dining room of Stanley Korshak, which owner Crawford Brock admitted to creating after appreciating vendors in Italy who always treated customers to food and wine in their presentations. The lunch also had an Italian flair, as we discovered the catering chef was from Italy (Tuscany, to be exact.. not far from where our bags are made). I spent the afternoon in the store, as customers shopped the collection, and he day closed with a cocktail event with many friends, former classmates from SMU, and local businessmen and women from the area. I even was asked to sign my first bag, by an enthusiastic shopper who came armed with a Sharpie (next time I will come prepared!).
Thanks again to the team at Stanley Korshak and those who came to the events.... There is nothing like that Texas Hospitality and we are so proud to be in your store!
