Karl Lagerfeld to Produce Runway Show in Dallas

The Huffington Post is reporting that legendary designer, Karl Lagerfeld, head designer and creative director for the fashion house Chanel will produce a "magical" runway show in Dallas "next year".


According to the Huffngton Post, "During the WWD CEO Summit yesterday, (Karl Lagerfeld) was asked about how he's able to keep Chanel fashion shows exciting to the public. Karl's answer? Stage them in "magical" surroundings. Like a Scottish castle. Or Texas. Yup, the creative director confirmed that he plans to put on a blowout fashion show in Dallas next year. And yes, he had lots to say in defense of his choice, "First of all, I love Texas. I love Texans. There’s another reason. When Chanel reopened, the French press was beyond nasty. The only press that understood it immediately was the American press, and Neiman Marcus gave her the Oscar for her collection, so I think it’s a nice thing to go there."
Obviously, we have no complaints about this -- anywhere that serves barbecue and Tex-Mex is great in our book. But does this mean that Chanel will go western? Will we see Chanel cowboy hats? Chanel spurs?? We'll just have to wait and see what happens in Dallas. Whatever he puts down the runway though, we're really hoping to hear him say "y'all" at least once. That would be quotable."

See what good manners get you! I will keep you posted as I get more details...
