Several notable Houstonians are making a splash in the national fashion industry, so it made sense to create an event to showcase the recognized local talent. On Wednesday, June 30, a press conference was held to announce the first annual Fashion Houston. Many of the organizers and key players in this new event were on hand: Page Parkes, Neal Hamil, Cesar Galindo, Jared Lang and an anticipated appearance by Mayor Annise Parker. The week long fete is to take place at the Wortham Theater from October 11 through October 15.
There is a list of heavy hitters already committed to Fashion Houston with the event still over three months away. Notables include Cesar Galindo, Christian Siriano, Marc Bouwer, Chloe Dao, David Peck, Kiton, Lauren Bush, Lynn Wyatt, Eileen Ford, Neal Hamil and Page Parkes. More details are due in the coming weeks, but this will be huge for the city’s fashion and arts industry. All events are free to the public with a few select VIP seats available for each show. Below are a few shots from the press conference held at the Wortham Theater Wednesday.
