Dallas ranks as one of the top cities in the country for the amount of money spent on clothing per month per capita – coming in at no. 5 in a recent national survey. And local boutiques like Cicada Collection earn the loyal patronage. This European-style boutique with only two locations – one here and one in Santa Fe – offers a curated selection of artfully created, contemporary women’s clothing and accessories from more than 20 independent designers throughout the world. Although each label is unique, owners Anne Mulvaney and Irina Ross choose designers with a similar muted palette for understated yet daring sophistication.
Cicada Collection debuted in Santa Fe but opened in Snider Plaza in fall 2011 after the owners noticed a consistent flow of Dallas travelers stopping in the Santa Fe boutique.
