Word has just arrived that The Dallas Opera’s 2019 First Sight/First Night Co-Chairs Kim and Greg Hext have landed big news for the First Sight Fashion Show and Luncheon at the Winspear Opera House. The fashions on the runway will be from the “acclaimed international design house” of Dolce&Gabbana.
According to Kim, “I am delighted that The Dallas Opera will be partnering in 2019 with the ultra-sophisticated Dolce&Gabbana brand to enable First Sight — which in a few short years has become a firmly established fashion institution — to expand the scope of its influence.”
What’s that? Didn’t know D&G had a local home? Well, you’re absolutely right. In fact, as of today, there is only one in Texas and that’s in Houston. But the Nancy Nasher crew at NorthPark is working to change all that.
Scheduled to open this fall, the luxury retailer will fit beautifully between Tiffany and David Yurman at NP.
Kim added, “I am profoundly grateful to Nancy Nasher and our presenting sponsor, NorthPark Center; and, of course, to Dolce&Gabbana for their enthusiastic support of The Dallas Opera’s First Sight and First Night celebrations. We’ll have other exciting partnership announcement to share this summer.”
Joining the Hexts in their fundraising effort are First Sight Fashion Show and Luncheon Chair Ellen Winspear, First Night Dinner Co-Chairs Carol and Don Glendenning and 2019 First Sight/First Night Honorary Co-Chairs The Winspear Family in honor of the Winspear Opera House’s tenth anniversary.
Early sales are underway here for First Sight on Thursday, October 17, and First Night on Friday, October 18.
