Epic First Night of Fashion Houston

Nicole | November 19, 2014

The exciting first night of fashion in Houston opened with Alexis Monsanto, Sameera Faridi, Jonathan Blake, Tibi, Little Black Dress Designer and Grungy Gentleman. Every year, Fashion Houston makes a fashionable takeover in the theater district and rolls out the red carpet to welcome local and international designers alike at the majestic Wortham Center, home of the Houston Ballet.

My day job as a photographer and my night-life as a social media blogger are going to merge seamlessly this week and last night was a sweet taste of this fusion. One of the best parts last night: to see all the Houston Fashion Bloggers on the red carpet, snapping photos, mingling with the models and taking endless selfies (you know I’m looking at you Madeline!) shamelessly.

The show closed with an energetic musical performance from Jadakiss while Grungy Gentleman exhibited their collection on the runway. It was really the cherry on top to a fabulous night! Encore!

Thanks to fellow Houston Fashion Bloggers, Cindy and Chiara who were my seat buddies last night, we had so much fun!

Thank you to Houston Fashion Bloggers and Fashion Houston for my tickets!
