Runway Houston 5 was held at the Citadel on Kirby and it was an absolute delight! The proceeds from the night went to benefit Houston Children Give Back and Leukemia Lymphoma Society. Although Omar Marcos has organized this event several times before, this was my first year to attend and it left me wishing I had gone in previous years. Special guest host Hunter Bell was charming as she explained how her recent move to Houston has given her a new found love for deep fried Oreo’s.
Runway Designers for the evening included Candice Cuoco (House of Ccuoco), Aries Milan (Kate Mills Pretty) , Joyce Echols (Joyce Echols), Paola Contreras (Inclan), and Nancy Nguyen (Nhi Nguyen). It was very pleasing to the eye to such such well made clothing from some many aesthetics and points of view. (See photos below)
There were several unique art installations from various artist including Fariba Abedin, Kelly Devine,Isrel Fonseca, Joubair Joubert, and Taft McWhorter. The common area was adorned with beautiful eye catching pieces and well as some art inspired garments.
I could try to explain how amazing the evening was in words but the photos will do a better job. One of the aspects I value most about runway shows are the countless staff members that come together to make it go off without a hitch. I captured some brilliant behind-the-scenes photos from that night for you! 🙂 After seeing this, I know you will put Runway Houston on your calendar next year. Share, comment, and enjoy!
