RUNWAY goes SOCIALISTA for FASHION HOUSTON
CATCHING up: smart move, HOUSTON [yes, Texas]… and it SHOWs. with a TRENDing of FASHION weeks popping up all over the world, it’s no surprise Houston is on the RUNWAY map, attracting some familiar NEW YORK fashion week designers, and why not… TEXAS ladies are a designer’s dream: these charismatic southern belles have a sophisticated eye, they can pick a dress, and have a fashion budget for purposeful occasions. written by brigitte segura.
NOT your ordinary off-site BLING parade, the four-day well-staged FASHION HOUSTON event sponsored by AUDI attracted the likes of CFDA chou chou [sweetheart] BIBHU MOHAPATRA, the ever so charming CARMEN MARC VALVO, sassy Houston native CESAR GALINDO, MBFW fresh face + FDM fave NORMAN AMBROSE along with Douglas Hannant and Robert Rodriguez among some of the designers showing.
here’s a little peek of fdm selects from HFW, and more from UBER socialista BECCA CASON THRASH‘s personal selection of couture from alexander mcqueen, gaultier, and Chado Ralph Rucci on FASHIONDAILYMAG.
