Lane-Knight to Expand Offerings and Relocate to West 7TH
FORT WORTH, Texas (March 19, 2012) – West 7th, the vibrant mixed-use development located at the southeast corner of University Drive and West 7th Street, announced today that Lane-Knight will be relocating its Camp Bowie Boulevard shop to a new Crockett Street location.
Billed as a one-stop destination for the latest and greatest in fashion-forward accessories, this trendsetting shop will introduce fashion apparel lines in its new West 7th shop, allowing the retailer’s clients to complete their Lane-Knight look while continuing to offer an unparalleled selection of designer accessories. The boutique, which has been featured in reputable fashion publications including Vogue, InStyle, Lucky, Oprah, Harper’s Bazaar and People StyleWatch, stocks a strong, edited assortment of internationally established brands as well as merchandise from up-and-coming designers.
Accessory collections include Lucite jewelry from New Yorker Alexis Bittar, Bond No. 9 fragrances, handbag collections from Rebecca Minkoff and MZ Wallace, plus collections by Jennifer Zeuner Jewelry, Lulu Frost, Kara Ross and Fort Worth-based Three Bishops, to name just a few. Apparel collections will include Diane von Furstenburg, Pendleton, Tibi, Current Elliot, Madison Marcus, Minnie Rose and Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent.
“With the introduction of apparel and the need for additional square footage to coincide with our current growth, West 7th was the perfect fit as well as the ideal location for our business,” stated Dawn Keifer, owner of Lane-Knight.
Founded in 2008, Lane-Knight has quickly become a leading go-to storefront and online destination for designer accessories. The Lane-Knight name came about as homage to Keifer’s English heritage. Lane and Knight are the maiden names of Keifer’s grandmothers — two women who greatly influenced her taste in art and style.
Lane-Knight will occupy a 1,411-square-foot shop on Crockett Street between Terra Mediterranean Grill and eclectic home accessory shop WRARE. The boutique is slated to open in late summer 2012.
“As West 7th continues to expand its fashion and accessory offerings, Lane-Knight is a logical complement to our existing merchant roster,” states Michael Wheat, executive vice president and director of leasing for Cypress Equities, the developer of West 7th. “The shop’s designer collections and new apparel brands are sure to be a hit with West 7th shoppers.”
The team of Frank Bullock and Carey Shagets of SRS Real Estate Partners and Roger Chieffalo of Chieffalo Realty represented both the landlord and tenant in lease negotiations.

The 13-acre development is located on 7th Street and University Drive near the Fort Worth business and cultural districts.
