INV. #:
Original "Japan Fortnight" Neiman Marcus Dallas (Texas) Oct 21 - Nov 2, 1974 exhibition poster. Two color format; very good condition.

The first Neiman Marcus Fortnight in 1957 made the pages of Time magazine where it was described as “Dallas in Wonderland. ” The flagship downtown Dallas store celebrated its 50th anniversary that year by creating a French extravaganza. Gallic décor, French fashions, perfumes, food and a visit from designer Coco Chanel captivated shoppers. Dallas’ first international flight landed at Love Field for the occasion – an Air France jet filled with French dignitaries, designers, writers and artists.

For the next 29 years Neiman Marcus Fortnight became one of the most important events in Dallas, bringing the culture, products and celebrities from more than 30 countries to the city. feng shui
