DALLAS (June 2, 2016) – Victory Park today announced that Dallas-based couture designer, Nardos Imam, has opened Nardos Design boutique on Victory Park Lane. The boutique features Imam’s custom couture bridal and evening wear collections as well as her cocktail collection featuring both custom and collection items.
“We are focused on curating a creative mix of tenants at Victory Park that highlight our commitment to cultivating a local and artisan vibe,” said Terry Montesi, CEO, Trademark Property Co., Victory Park’s retail partner. “Nardos’ commitment to Victory Park comes on the heels of the announcement that Tristan Simon will open three concepts at Victory. The endorsement of two local entrepreneurs of their caliber speaks volumes to the reinvigoration of Victory.
“I am so excited to be part of Victory Park. It is a growing area that is becoming a landmark,” said Imam. “The move to Victory Park has become an endless source of inspiration for my creations.”
Last month, Victory Park announced that Dallas entrepreneur Tristan Simon’s company, Rebees, will open three new concepts in 2017 including a restaurant, a retail emporium focused on locally made goods, and a co-working office space that will include a café. In addition, Cinépolis USA will join Victory Park in 2017.

In addition, construction is underway on the unfinished parking garage across from the W Dallas – Victory Hotel to add 22,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, and a dramatic, 2,600-square-foot, second-floor covered patio connected to a signature restaurant at the northeast corner of the garage.
As part of phase I redevelopment efforts, which began in 2014, Victory Park added a new signalized intersection, traffic light and crosswalk at Olive Street and Victory Park Lane; and, on Victory Park Lane, removed raised medians and street lights, widened sidewalks to accommodate large outdoor patios, installed new trees, added raised mid-block crosswalks, installed placemaking elements such as new directories, planters, benches, light poles and banners, implemented two way traffic on Houston Street and Victory Avenue, and extended the Katy Trail, with dedicated bike lanes on Houston Street.
