Fashion Houston Day One Recap

I attended the very chic and sophisticated Fashion Houston on last Monday. It was the first of four days of runway excitement, networking, beauty, and fashion.

It was held at the Wortham Center again this year. I love how the transform the area to make you forget where you actually are. A huge tent is set up in front of the theater for the pre-activities. There was a red carpet and a Step and Repeat for pictures.

There was a cute little young DJ who was getting the party started and working the ones and twos. She even danced for us too.

There were artists displaying and selling their work. Photographers, fashion designers, accessory designers, even plastic surgery clinics & detox companies.

I was able to sample the Green Drink from Crush Cleanse.  It wasn’t too bad and the lady reassured me that it’s safe and gentle therefore it wouldn’t cause me to run to the restroom during the fashion show. LOL! 😉

Dice Boutique was genius with the idea of having their own mini fashion show and pre-lit runway.

I had the opportunity to mix and mingle with a couple of the vendors as well. 20121119-224935.jpg
I got a chance to meet the ladies of Mon Venin. They have amazing pieces.

The VIP Lounge was very posh!  There were complimentary refreshments and “Spruce Goose” drinks. 20121119-230319.jpg20121119-230051.jpg

I was so grateful to have had the opportunity to cover Fashion Houston on my blog. This was the 2nd year in a row that I’ve had press access. I’m looking forward to next year.
