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. I had a very interesting conversation there, with what turned out to be a cosmetic surgeon. He told me worked for the cosmetic surgery center Cool-sculpting Manhattan, and we got to talking about topics related to his career. It was pretty interesting actually, and he makes it sound so easy. It kind of made me want to get a thing or two fixed for myself. He said it would be a breeze. Personally, I don’t know about that. If I find the time to put away for recovery I’m giving him a call for sure. If he claims it’s easy then at very least I’ll know a highly experienced pro is on the task.
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.
Once you walk in the tent, there are vendors set up as well as the VIP section for Happy Hour. Audi is a big sponsor of Fashion Houston so some of the first things you notice are the cool Audi cars parked on each side.
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.

The inside of the Wortham Center was so pretty.
Neal Hamil spoke first before the show started.
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.
