Fall 2013 Simon Fashion Now Houston Galleria Show

DSCF9901I attended the Simon Fashion Now Fashion Show this past Thursday for the 1st time and it was a great experience!  Cadillac does a fantastic job of sponsoring this fashion event inside of the Houston Galleria.IMG_20130906_004123


     I actually got a chance to see the Ice Skating Rink being turned into the venue the night before, right after leaving the Simon Fashion Now Blogger Preview Party.

Below is the check-in booth where you received your wristband for entry to the show.


 After getting our wristband upstairs, we went downstairs to wait to enter.



 While waiting, we were able to take pictures with Smile Booth in front of the step and repeat.

Another one of the sponsors and vendors was Same Sky.  100% of the net proceeds of this jewelry line go to women in Rwanda to support their “trade-not-aid” initiative.

Next was a bit of a surprise. There appeared to be a boy band singing Justin Timberlake’s “Bringing Sexy Back”. Then the models started walking out from Saks Fifth Avenue. Basically Saks had live entertainment for the models to strut down the runway. It turned out to be pretty cool.DSCF9968DSCF9973DSCF9974DSCF9975DSCF9976 DSCF9977 DSCF9978 DSCF9979 DSCF9980 DSCF9985 Max Mara was next DSCF9992DSCF9994DSCF9996DSCF9997DSCF0003 DSCF0004Fendi had some amazing textures, designs, and shoes in their show.DSCF0015 DSCF0018 DSCF0019 DSCF0023 DSCF0027DSCF0031There was more live entertainment during the Jimmy Choo  showDSCF0034DSCF0042DSCF0046DSCF0048 DSCF0049Carolina Hererra had gorgeous gownsDSCF0067DSCF0068DSCF0070 Next up was FerragamoDSCF0080This pair of boots looks great in both white and blackDSCF0083 DSCF0086
