Elaine Turner/David Peck Champagne Reception

A champagne reception was held on Wednesday at the Elaine Turner Flagship store in the Rice Village area.  I was so excited to get to attend the event before we headed off to claim our spot amongst the press at the fashion show.  I was so delighted to see David Peck at the event.  We actually got the chance to talk with him for a few minutes about his designs as well as how he was adjusting to the hot temperatures of Houston.  Peck moved to Houston from New York City this past January and while he made it clear he was adjusting to the heat, he could not be happier about all of the opportunities that have become so abundantly available.  He was happy to tell us about CrOp (standing for Creative Opportunities) and how the prints on his pieces were actually photographs by Jamie Collier whom he has currently been collaborating with on his Spring collection.  The photographs were actually taken of aid work being done in Uganda and the photos used in the clothing were carefully picked by both David and Jamie.  I think they made for some marvelous fabrics for these incredible dresses.

Me and David Peck

After grabbing a quick cup (they ran out of glasses, but I just loved this cup!) of champagne, Shan and I milled around the store oohhhing and awwwwing over pretty much every single thing there.  I wanted to get my actual hands on the David Peck dresses that I drooled over the night before and they were even better up close!



These are the scarves that are also part of the CrOp collection using the prints from Jamie Collier.



The handbags were to die for and I found at least 3 pairs of ballet flats that were screaming my name.  I am planning on taking my mom down to the store later this week to see what we can find for her!


I really want this bracelet!!


 My cousin and I were both in love with this sequin, leopard print clutch!

That dress paired with the brown belt is so lovely! You're so lucky to be able to attend these events and chat with the artists behind the work. That black handbag third photo down is gorgeous.
