FGI | The Fashion Group International 

I had an absolute blast attending The Fashion Group Intentional’s holiday party for 2015. Houston fashion designer Steve Guthrie was a gracious and welcoming host. I feel compelled to write my ramblings down after such a wonderful gathering. I had the unique experience of interacting with designers, mixed media artists, illustrators, photographers, teachers, fashion enthusiast and more, all under one roof! With so many creative people that hold different positions with multiple capacities in one space, there were a few reoccurring themes of the night. One being that we were all very happy to be surrounded with like minded individuals. We each were able to have so many meaningful productive conversations, simply because we were all in the same head space. We all wanted to be there, we all wanted to connect, we all wanted to help one another in some way. We happily shared our obsessions, passions, goals, strategies,life lessons and even things we just find hilarious.

I’ve said all that, to say this: Surround yourself with people you want to be like. If there is something you want to do or a goal you want to attain, seek to connect with people who have already done it or that are in pursuit. Not only can you bring new perspectives to the table, but It will help everyone involved to remain INSPIRED! The feeling and thought of inspiration is a critical first step to setting goals for yourself. You’re less likely to set and update your goals if you don’t have good sources of inspiration.
Life Goal# 289 | Be inspired.





Meru Merus by Umair Khan

I watched excitedly as a nearly empty space  turned into a runway. Couture designer Umair Khan was at the head of it all. I LOVE to be front row at fashion shows but my true passion lies in what happens behind the scenes. I love the frantic buzz of designers, models, makeup artists, and hair stylist preparing for for the big moment. My deep appreciation for the people that make wonders happen is the center of this piece.

I watched as designer Umair Khan calmly walked around and put his touch on everything. To watch a designer take such care of seemingly minuscule details was like watching an artist create a masterpiece before my very eyes. Yet while all this was being done, he found the time to make sure I had everything I needed.

Partnered with Umair to finish all the looks was Afsheen Tejani and Pooja Jain of Tezaria’s High Couture Jewelry. The hand crafted pieces gave the feel of completion to every single look. We all know that a couture garment goes seamlessly with couture jewelry and Tezaria’s did not disappoint. See more hand crafted pieces on Instagram. 

 The hard work was done. The beautiful Meru Merus Fall 2015-Winter 2016 couture line was complete. Every model was fitted for garments, they practice their walks, and there was Umair every step of the way making sure that it was Authentically+Meru Merus. The level of preparedness, dedication, and passion was not unnoticed. All of Umair’s influences shined brightly in every piece that came down the runway.The dream and vision of being a respected designer has and will continue to come to fruition for Umair and Meru Merus.
