Curated by Dallasite Ken Weber of Vintage Martini and featuring pieces from both the Susan Denn and Robert Schmidt Collection and The Texas Fashion Collection of UNT College of Visual Arts & Design, “Decadence” showcases the allure of the 1920s through its fashion and accessories.

1920s-inspired silhouettes have recently been spotted on the runways of popular fashion designers such as Gucci, Marchesa and Prada, but guests of “Decadence” can view authentic, rare pieces from French, Spanish and Italian couturiers like Madeleine Vionnet, Mariano Fortuny, Maria Monaco Gallenga and Lucien Lelong.

The exhibit is located on the North End of Level One, across from Tiffany & Co., and is open daily from noon to 6 p.m. For more information, call 972-702-7171.
