Heidi Tribute

Cultural Slumming! This was the headline for the House of Moschino Jeremy Scott-designed dress exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum’s Camp: Notes on Fashion. How appropriate that Heidi Dillon wore, Drink Moschino Cape from this series, a few years ago to the DMA Art Ball. Heidi, more than anyone else I know in Dallas, has always embraced camp and elevated it to high fashion. Heidi loves fashion and has fun with fashion. The Metropolitan chose this quote by David Halperin for the piece: Camp—demonstrates an exhilaration in identifying with the lowest of the low. Heidi can elevate the lowest cultural ritual to a cultured Chi-Chi expression. Cultural slumming would define one of my favorite hijinks in which Heidi was an enthusiastic participant. Many years ago, the Dillons and I were invited to the very elegant opening of the Chanel store in Highland Park Village. Heidi’s response was to enhance the decadence of this elegant evening with what some would consider a low form of cultural ritual—tailgating. Across from the Chanel store in a Ralph Lauren parking space, the open trunk of the Bentley revealed blocks of the finest foie gras in exquisite serving pieces. This was my first time tailgating for any event, but it was a delightful and joyful experience as we drifted back and forth from the Chanel store to the tailgate. Heidi has the ability to identify with the lowest of the low and enjoy life with the highest of the high. If you slide through images, you can see some other fabulous costumes by Jeremy Scott shown at the Metropolitan Museum. Earlier this year, Heidi Dillon hosted Jeremy Scott at her house for dinner. I am sure he came away from the evening with further inspiration. *Heidi Tribute
