36 hours of non-stop parties to celebrate the opening of the 37,000 square foot flagship store of luxury retailer, Forty Five Ten in Dallas, Texas. missyRSVP planned every event to the detail for over a year with Co-Founder Brian Bolke.
The first night was an intimate evening for VIP’s and out of town guests with a special private performance by Andra Day. Fashion designers including Adam Lippes, Monique Péan, Nicholas Kirkwood, Derek Lam, Leandra Medine of Man Repeller, Jack McCollough and Lazro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, to name a few, were all in attendance. During the day on Friday, guests were invited to tour some of Dallas’- and the worlds’s – most notable art collections, including those of Cindy Rachofsky and Deedie Rose, with a luncheon at the Rachofsky’s own art gallery, The Wearhouse. At Friday’s gala event, termed “THE ECCENTRICS”, after the custom Forty Five Ten coffee table book that went out with each invite, guests sipped Dom Perignon and caviar on potato chips while hits from 90s glamazon DJ Evalicious echoed throughout the 4 story party. To cap off the festivities, a special performance by Dita Von Teese at the Joule Terrace (think: striptease in massive Swarovski martini glass), where pizza was served by sexy waiters and more champagne was flowing. The night continued at a party hosted by model Erin Wasson at the Joule’s subterranean cocktail lounge, Midnight Rambler until the wee hours of the morning!
