Rami Salamoun kicked off the final night of Fashion Houston with loud and risque gowns as well as sparkly evening wear for men. Even tho it would be hard to wear one of these pieces, I was drooling none the less. Particularly over the jaw dropping white leotard that opened the show strong, it even came back down the runway with a tulle skirt, LOVE! It would be hard to find an occasion worthy of one of these gowns, but if I could, I would def rock one!
Fabrice Tardieu certainly gave all the ladies in the audience something to enjoy with his laid back menswear ranging from luxe sweats and soft leather to patterned suits.
I still can’t believe Amir Taghi is still in high school!?! Talk about making me feel unaccomplished. He showed his fall line with lots of beige and red tones, as well as his pastel spring line. It was all beautiful with clean, simple lines, and perfectly placed beading that elevated each piece from a minimalist state.
Valentina Kova had the most easy to wear, comfortable, yet stylish cool girl vibe radiating from her collection. The models all wore flats which really echoed the coolness factor, it was different, and I really enjoyed it. I even caught a shot of Valentina after the show wearing one of her robes from the show.
David Peck was the perfect choice to close this fabulous four day event, being the ever growing face of Houston fashion that he is. His collection was wearable and functional for any woman and had a great earthy and rich color palette. Ballerinas performed midway through his show and even stalked some of the models down the runway during the second half. During the closing walk the models each carried masquerade masks. David Peck has been making some great collaboration choices here in Houston, and I doubt it will be long before he’s just as well known everywhere else.
