Fashion X Houston Recap

Thank you to Dolce & Gabbana for hosting our VIP event. It was the perfect way to start the evening as a Style Setter.

It was such an amazing night of friendship with all my favorite girls and one of my favorite boys, the uber talented, outside the box thinking stylist, Todd Ramos, aka Haute Toddy. His behind the scenes contributions made my 8 looks on the runway shine beyond expectations.

One of the biggest highlights of the night was sharing my joy with the amazingly beautiful, intelligent Joanne King Herring. She is a Houstonian but is internationally known as a socialite, businesswoman, political activist, philanthropist, diplomat, and former television talk show host. I admire her more than words can explain.
We were surprised by a special guest appearance by Dominique SachseKPRC Channel 2 newscaster, Instagram influencer and beauty blogger. She rocked the runway for local and national fashion Project Runway star, Chloe Dao. We are so excited to have her join us at Crime Stoppers Houston Gala on Thursday Oct 25th as our emcee.
My favorite photo of the night was my sweet @thevintageprincessa with @countdumoney in a precious moment of crown sharing.
Matt Swinney, Fashion X Houston Founder and more,  has been paving the way for innovation designers from the state of Texas and beyond by producing high quality fashion presentations showcasing the newest to the most respected fashion houses around the world.  I have been so honored to participate in Austin, Dallas and Houston to support his efforts and the fashion industry as a whole.
It was a dream to be able to share a potion of the proceeds from the VIP ticket sales to Crime Stoppers of Houston in support of our efforts to stop sex trafficking and crimes against children by educating the students of Houston schools.
My podcast partner in fighting crime, Rania Mankarious, and I shared our passion and commitment to the women of fashion in the audience. We asked each of them and you to join the conversation.  We shared our vision as two fierce women with a love of fashion, faith, family and community who will be presenting national personalities for sit-down conversations with solutions to making tomorrow better, safer, happier and healthier.
