Houston Fashion Week Day Three

We got to Houston Fashion Week crazy early yesterday because we were told the press was going to be insane! So, we pretty much showed up two hours early to claim out favorite spot right smack in the front of the runway.  We sat there for so long our tooshies actually fell asleep, I swear!

First up was our very own, Chloe Dao, whom I completely adore! Her designs were whimsical and fun while the models happily strutted down the catwalk with colored balloons and huge smiles.  The whole feel of the collection was merry and pleasant as opposed to the usual serious model faces we are all used to seeing on the runway.  Chloe walked out with all of her models for the final walk through and accepted a beautiful bouquet of stunning flowers.

I absolute love this jumpsuit! I really want to get it!!

Second up was Toni Whitaker who combined elegant gowns with less formal dresses and ensembles that radiated with bright sunny yellows and crisp whites.  There were quite a few Mad Men-esque looks including wiggle dresses and blazer/pencil skirt pairings.

Irina Shabayeva, the winner of the sixth season of Project Runway had quite a collection to show us.  There were quite a few pieces in her collection and it was hard to narrow down the pictures to share with you, but somehow I did.  Her pieces were definitely more on the elegant side and incredibly feminine.

The show was a huge success and we had a ball! Tonight we will be attending the other Houston Fashion Week going on. I know, it is pretty crazy to have two going on at the same time, but oh well!  Check back tomorrow for more fabulous pics!

OMG I loved almost every single floor length gown here, but the berry one really stole my heart.

Ugh. I've been so sick and tired (literally) this past week, and feel like all my favorite blogs posted their best stuff around this time. Time to do some catching up!

With that said, nice pics. I love the black/white evening dress that's shorter in front in particular. And I love seeing fashion week from the perspective of a city other than Paris or NYC. As much as I love the big names, it's great to see what up and comers and more localized artists do too.

Thank you so much for sharing these.

PS, AWESOME new banner lady!
