Fashion's Night Out [Houston]

ByJRochelle had the privilege of covering Fashion's Night Out for The Fashion Group International of Houston, Inc.! Here are a few shots and snippets! For more pictures and information click here.

First we hit up the ShopGirl Style Lounge (in front of Louis Vuitton) at the Houston Galleria. Joy Sewing hosted this celebration of fashion with music, cupcakes by SweetBatter and beauty demos by Edward Sanchez Vanity Lounge. Visitors also got a preview of the Chronicle's weekly luxury Style section, which launches in November. For the record, Joy says that she  never wore blue until Sydney Dao convinced me it was my color.

While we were in the Galleria for a Fall trend presentation with special appearance by designer Catherine Deane, Art installations throughout the store from Houston Fine Art Fair  Campfire couture: Nosh on custom gourmet s’mores in the Mariposa® restaurant  Visit Cosmetics for mini-makeovers, nail art, concealer consultation & a braid bar.

More Than You Can Imagine showed the Big Apple how it's done! They celebrated FNO giving visitors first access to some of the new fall lines while enjoying light bites! Patrons played the Fashion Rules game for prizes & giveaways under the helm of Vicki Rizzo.
