The Halles’ fall 2023 Late Night Luxury Sip & Shop was one of the hottest shopping parties of the season, with a dazzling selection of some of the finest jewelry, art, clothing and fashion accessories in town offered by an eclectic mix of local and national brands. 

Madame Zero Champagne got everyone’s night started off right with a complimentary glass of its low-sugar, low-carb French bubbly while DJ Kay Dee of Premier Sound and Lighting spun party hits from the 80s and 90s in the jam-packed pavilion. A selection of sweet and salty snacks by Libby Corneau of Libby’s Kitchen and Studio, including her locally famous avocado chocolate chip cookies, kept shoppers and vendors fueled up for the after-hours bazaar fun. 

The first 50 shoppers through the door received a gift bag sponsored by realtor Andrea Riebeling of NAN and Company Properties, Christie’s International Real Estate that included cans of Coco Vodka and Coco Rum spiked beverages, a sample pack of cocktail mixes from My Drink Bomb, a cookie from Round Top Brewing and a sample pack of Seasoned Straws’ flavored beverage enhancing straws. 

With champagne and gifts in hand, well-heeled show goers sought out special pieces like Sapana’s blanket coats by Jolie Helms, curated fashion from Selina Stanford’s Frock Shop, La Lo La Clothing by Leah Malasko, Chloe Di Leo Fine Jewelry, quilted outerwear by Elizabeth Leaman of Lady Lancaster, Tres Outlaws custom boots and couture Western wear from Rockabilly Baroness, modern handbags by Tonya Hawkes Designs, delicate jewels by Shelley Moon Designs, up-to-the-minute pieces from Houston-based fashion designer Brandon Kafarela of Molly x Niko, and luxury consignment shoes, handbags and more from Marla Hurley of Modern Marla.

A new suite of short-term Halles’ vendors stayed open for the Sip & Shop from newly-built retail stalls at the back of the pavilion, bringing even more fashion and art to the party. Texan contemporary design gallery Elysian Collective brought some of its best pieces for the home from pottery and textiles to lighting and more. Dallas-based retailer Forty Five Ten offered a curated selection of designer clothing, which paired perfectly with the colorful array of handbags brought in by French legacy leather goods company Moreau, and City Boots added to the colorful fashion story with their signature array of Western style leather footwear in a rainbow of hues.
