72 TUCKERNUCK'S NATTY NIGHT BY CHRISTINA GEYER. PHOTOGRAPHY JOHN CAIN SARGENT. W hen my friend Shelby Goff asked me to help welcome Tuckernuck and its co- founders, Jocelyn Gailliot and September Rinnier Votta, to Dallas, I couldn't say yes fast enough. The brand is beloved for its collection of classic-preppy clothing and accessories — Nantucket-style Americana. I have countless Tuckernuck pieces in my closet, my favorite recent purchase being a floral summer dress designed by Emerson Fry and handmade in India. When coming up with a venue for the trunk show, we were touched by a stroke of serendipity: Interior design darling Amy Berry was days away from opening her namesake boutique, Amy Berry Home, on Oak Lawn. She quickly agreed to host Tuckernuck's multi-day trunk show, as well as a welcome dinner for 40 of the city's most stylish gals on the evening before her store's grand opening. She was putting the finishing touches on her store but held off installing her full collection of furniture and accessories. In place, she installed two long tables with dreamy blue-and-white tablecloths and china. When the dinner hour rang, guests paraded in, thrilled to shop Tuckernuck's summery wares and sneak a peek at Berry's much-anticipated design store. Fueled by Whispering Angel rosé and a multi-course meal by Cassandra Fine Catering, guests stayed late, chatting all things fashion, design, and summer travel plans. The next day, I popped back into Amy Berry Home for more shopping and to reconvene with Gailliot and Votta. After the dinner and trunk show's wild success, my bets are on Tuckernuck opening a permanent store in Dallas — and, in my opinion, it couldn't happen soon enough.
