With a slew of store openings — and more on the way — there has never been a better time to shop in Dallas. A spin through these fashion hot spots is sure to lift spirits — and damage bank accounts.

Aftershock London
The Plaza at Preston Center recently welcomed the first Aftershock London U.S flagship. The brand known for of-the-moment and affordable glamour has attracted a dedicated following of celebrities and brings dynamic European style to Dallas.

Alexander McQueen
Famed British fashion house Alexander McQueen is the newest notch in Highland Park Village's couture belt. The timing couldn't be better, as Crystal Charity Ball chose Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton as the featured designer at the fall 10 Best Dressed Fall Fashion Show and Luncheon. We can't wait to see what gorgeously constructed pieces the ladies will be wearing.

Edo Popken
The Swiss brand known for its limited-edition men's dress shirts soft opens June 6, just in time for Father's Day. President Edo Popken, a longtime DIFFA supporter, is personally involved in the design of all garments, which are more works of art than apparel. The Design District locale is the first Edo Popken store in the United States.

Lavo Collections
Stay on top of the hottest trends at the latest addition to Mockingbird Station. Boasting a wide selection of affordable clothing, shoes and accessories, Lavo Collections can fill every hole in your wardrobe. Think crochet shorts, flowy print dresses and funky accessories to style you through summer.

Lublu
Russian-born designer Kira Plastinina is opening a shop in Preston Center later this month. With stores in her hometown of Moscow and one in LA, the young designer is eager to unveil her flagship store in her current hometown of Dallas. Look forward to getting your hands on her feminine yet daring collection
 
Ornare
This new Design District showroom is what we like to call 4,000 square feet of home decor heaven. The Brazilian brand boasts a clean, luxurious aesthetic for the kitchen, bath and closest and offers wealth of customized selections in a variety of unexpected materials such as cowhide and imprinted leathers. 
 
TenOverSix
This LA import recently opened at the Joule hotel downtown. On one side is TenOverSix Presents, a new kind of hotel gift shop with whimsical home decor, funky accessories and one-of-a-kind trinkets. The other side is stocked with contemporary womenswear with new-to-Dallas brands such as Araks, Vena Cava, Apiece Apart and Novis. 
 
Uno de 50
This new Dallas Galleria shop offers unique jewelry for men and women, made with mixed metals, leather, crystals and resin. Everything is handcrafted in Spain and priced fairly. We love the bracelets that you can stack up your arm for an artsy boho-chic look.
 
This Victory Park boutique is not new, but it has become a destination for girls who crave of-the-moment fashions from up-and-coming contemporary designers. Case in point: V.O.D. now carries looks from Jonathan Simkhai, one of the rising stars currently on tour with the CFDA Fashion Incubator program.
