Some of Houston’s most prominent trendsetters took over River Oaks District with this year’s Fashion X Houston extravaganza.
THE PARTY Lights, showstopping garments and trendsetters enveloped the River Oaks District for the third annual Fashion X Houston extravaganza. The event brought local designers and boutiques to the catwalk for three days of shows. THE SCENE Stores hosted cocktail celebrations; the shuttered Forty Five Ten space held a VIP party with small bites, libations, a DJ and live drawings by fashion illustrator Rongrong DeVoe. Then, VIPs headed out to the district’s courtyard to take their seats along the massive catwalk and view collections by Vince, Alice + Olivia, Chopard and myriad emerging designers. THE HIGHLIGHTS Each night honored a prominent local style-setter who exemplified fashion savvy and a commitment to the community. Alicia Smith, Donae Chramosta, Vivian Wise and Lori Raijman were honorees. A portion of the event’s proceeds benefited I Am Waters Foundation, Crime Stoppers of Houston, Texas Legacy Foundation and The Arts of Healing. -Mellanie Perez
