Fashion Night Out RunDown

Ok Houston! Tonight is the night and there are events all over town!

You can start at either Elaine Turner stores (Rice Village or CityCenter) from 6-9 pm for cocktails, snacks and discounts PLUS the preview of her new fall line which DISH is madly in love with, by the way!

From 5-8 pm at the Galleria most of the high end specialty stores will be rolling out the red carpet to show you the fall 2011 preview! If you were lucky enough to score an invite that is...all of the parties are private! However, there is one way the general public can participate and that is the Simon NOW Fashion show on the ice rink in the middle of the Galleria! The show will introduce looks from Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, CH Carolina Herrera, Fendi, Jimmy Choo, MaxMara, St. John and Tiffany & Co. Immediately following the show, Gigi's Asian Bistro & Dumpling Bar will host an official post-show party.

To get the feel of the night and get you in the fashion mood...here is a video of the Simon Fashion Now 2011 Spring show so you can have an idea of the fashion fun you can have on the ice rink at the Galleria tonight!

Number 41 Approves

Tuesdays fashion showcase was star studded to say the least. Designers David Peck, Elaine Turner, Lauren Bush, Lela Rose and Net-A-Porter shows were on tap for the evening.

Peck’s line “CrOp,” was a real crowd pleasers. His designs are CrOp which is short for “creative opportunities.” It makes one wonder what the creative process is like in the minds of the great fashion creators with Peck showing he is on his way to elite status.

Former President George Bush, wife Barbara Bush were on hand to support granddaughter Lauren Bush line “Lauren Pierce,” which is dedicated to “Women for Women International,” which teaches women how to hand-dye fabrics. Also there to support Lauren were her dad Neil Bush, brother Pierce Bush and stepmom Maria Bush

Lauren’s line is made with environmentally friendly fabrics as well as handcrafted fabrics from artisans around the world. The eco-friendly fabrication combined with these worldly inspirations makes for a timelessly eclectic collection that is both socially conscious and beautiful. Lela Rose has an unbelievable shoe line at payless and Net-A-Porter line was extravagant to say the least.

It does appear that Houston is trying to make it's mark on the map thanks to Fashion Houston 2010, the question remains however....Can it?

Only time will tell, in the mean time DISHIES, see you on the runway!
