The new Neiman Marcus Fort Worth inside The Shops at Clearfork opens in February. But, we just couldn’t wait that long. So, we put on our hard hats (literally) and teamed up with the Neiman Marcus team to shoot some of the season’s top looks from the luxury retailer inside the still-under-construction space. Even with exposed steel beams, partially laid floors and stacks of drywall, the new store is already a stunner and so are fall’s top trends. Think florals, berry hues, high-shine metallics, velvet, layered chokers and top-handle handbags. Warning: fashionable objects ahead.
*The following story has online exclusives with bonus images and more details on the future store.
*We shot this look in the future fragrance department of the new Neiman Marcus. The fragrance room will be adjacent to the beauty floor, and the large windows will overlook the Clearfork development and the park-like setting.
