DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. WILD THING MARBURGER MILESTONE A s anyone who once made that momentous trip to Claire's knows, ear piercing is a rite of passage. But recently, the forever trend has amplified beyond a simple stud. Now it's all about the designed ear, with multiple piercings, hoops, cuffs, and diamond studs arranged just so. Alysa Teichman — who brings a notable retail jewelry pedigree (her parents, Joanne and Charles Teichman, have owned Ylang 23 for 35-plus years) — is tapping into the global obsession with Wildlike, a new concept that puts an artistic spin on the piercing parlor. The striking space, situated in The Shops of Highland Park, was dreamed up by Swoon the Studio and B. Russo Designs. Think of it as a personal salon gallery filled with tiny works of art. Wildlike offers luxe, pierce-specific jewelry brands (Maria Tash, Pamela Love, BVLA, and Kismet by Milka), a styling bar, piercing rooms, and lounge. It's a vision fully realized — both in-studio and in the gold-and-diamond studs artfully arranged across your lobes. Wildlike, The Shops of Highland Park, 4218 Oak Lawn Ave., Caitlin Clark spring. In the press announcement, Brook Partners CEO John Sughrue says, "The Marburger Farm Antique Show is a Texas icon … We intend to preserve the DNA and heritage of the Marburger experience while building on the success of the Show to add layers of new opportunities." Joining Sughrue on his Marburger team are Jeremy Buonamici, CEO of Fashion Industry Gallery, and Kelly Cornell, longtime director of the Dallas Art Fair. Known as the faces of Marburger Farm for more than a decade, Tracy and Brad Blacketer — respectively, business manager and director of operations — will remain in senior management positions. The Blacketers will continue as boots in the field when the celebrated Marburger Farm Antique Show begins its next chapter this fall and heads toward its silver anniversary in 2022.
