ANNIVERSARY PARTY: “One always loves success,” noted Caroline Rose Hunt, a serene octogenarian presence within the uproar of Stanley Korshak’s 25th anniversary party. Hunt opened the designer store to anchor the retail complex at her Rosewood Crescent Hotel in Dallas, and sold the business in 2002 to longtime manager Crawford Brock. He more than doubled it to 65,000 square feet — nearly all of the Crescent’s retail space. The festivities attracted more than 700 people, from old-guard Texans who had celebrated Korshak’s debut with Hunt to the young, rich and fashion savvy, including Billie Leigh Rippey, Shy and Charlotte Jones Anderson, Linda and Steve Ivy, Eduardo and Kary Brittingham, and Doris Jacobs and her daughter Teffy. “We made it!” enthused Rose Clark, general merchandise manager.
Brock flitted among the crowd like a hummingbird gathering nectar. “It’s fantastic,” he exclaimed. Business is coming back from the trough of 2009 — up nearly 15 percent last year, Brock noted in an interview earlier this month. “I think it’s due to new resources, and the economy is trying to come back. We will exceed ’08 sales this year. We could hit ’07 by the end of 2012, but my guess is it will be closer to ’13.”
