Beautiful Dallas bookworms flocked to Forty Five Ten to support interior designer Jan Showers and pick up a signed copy of her new book, Glamorous Retreats.

Champagne awaited guests — including Barbara and Don Daseke, Shelle Sills, Gonzalo Bueno, Missy Rogers, Sam Saladino, and Deon and Bob Scheinberg — who took turns chatting with Showers as she gracefully made her way around the store. Husband Jim proudly accompanied his wife, whose gorgeous new tome is all the rage right now in the Dallas home and design world.

Forty Five Ten owner Brian Bolke is stocking the new book, which is a work of art unto itself. Only the best of the best makes it onto the shelves of this McKinney Avenue hot spot. 

The idea for Glamorous Retreats came to Showers while on summer holiday on Lake Como in 2010. The interior designer had been working on numerous second and third homes for clients over the past decade that had never been published. She knew this would be the perfect way to showcase these beautiful spots in the United States and around the world. 

As an added luxury for those in attendance, the Jason Wu spring 2014 collection was shown — an exclusive to Dallas. Just the way we like things.
