I attended a preview event of what’s in store for tomorrow’s Houston Fashion Night Out at the Houston Galleria.
It was held in the Monarch Room of the Westin Galleria Hotel

Once we walked in, we were greeted and then allowed to look at the pieces that would be displayed over the next couple of days during Simon Fashion Night Out.
A select group of Houston Area Bloggers attended the “invite only” 1st annual Simon Fashion Now Before The Runway show.
For the very first of it’s kind in the area, there was a great turn out.

We were on the 24th floor so I just had to take pics of my view.
If you look closely, you will be able to see Macy’s and Nordstrom’s below.
To get the party started, there was a DJ and light refreshments with Champagne.
I had to get a quick pic on the red carpet before the show started. LOL!
Almost time for the models to hit the runway. The server was bringing around refreshments and Bloggers were getting ready.
There was a Q&A session after the runway show with the VP of Special Events for Simon, Jackie Ellis and Stylist Leslie. They gave us great info on the 2012 Fall trends.
Navy will be big. Reds and wines will be popular as well. Leather, fur, and animal print will be seen a lot and used in different ways to accent other pieces.
After the show we stayed around to mingle. Below is a picture of me with a local make up artist whose work I really admire, Steven Cole of Cole Colors.
We follow each other on twitter. It was nice to meet him in real life. Very stylish and full of energy. He’s coming out with a line of lip glosses next year. I can’t wait to try them. I’m all about supporting my fellow Houston makeup artists.
Here I am with my fellow Houston Fashion Bloggers Tomekia and Wanda.
