8 FROM LOUIS VUITTON TO GUCCI, VERSACE TO ROBERTO CAVALLI, N O RT H PA R K C E N T E R A N D I T S GOLDEN ROSTER OF RETAILERS HAVE LONG LED THE FASHION CHARGE IN DALLAS. As PaperCity toasts two decades in Dallas, we look back at some of NorthPark Center's most fashionable moments — from Fashion at the Park to NorthPark Center's own 50th anniversary, which saw the intersection of fashion, contemporary art, and philanthropy in a most megawatt way. One thing is certain: As the decades tick on, things only get more fashionable. FASHION AT THE PARK In 2007 and 2008, NorthPark Center gave NYC a run for its money, staging its own fashion week with runway shows, a busy party schedule, and a few surprise performances. (Remember when a little- known performer called Lady Gaga took to the catwalk in 2008?) FIFTY YEARS OF FASHION In celebration of its golden anniversary, Dallas' biggest fashion and shopping event of the year took place in October 2015. Fashion took center stage with back-to-back runway shows under Mark di Suvero's iconic Ad Astra sculpture, with collections from Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Roberto Cavalli, Salvatore Ferragamo, Elie Tahari, and more. SARTORIAL EXHIBITIONS NorthPark Center has partnered with the University of North Texas, bringing the university's Texas Fashion Collection to life by way of myriad fashion exhibitions. Of note was "Art Meets Fashion: 1965- 2015," an exhibition of 29 iconic looks spanning 50 years of fashion.
