"Made in Houston" movement gets a boost as Fashion Houston kicks off

In this week's KHOU CultureMap Moment, Channel 11 morning news anchor Lily Jang and I talked with David Peck to learn more about the "Made in Houston" movement that will be featured at Fashion Houston. The burgeoning campaign to tout the city's fledgling fashion industry is getting a boost from the Houston Designed task force, organized by the Greater Houston Partnership, to highlight manufacturing and design opportunities in the Bayou City.

Fashion Houston begins tonight at the Wortham Center, with runway looks from emerging Houston designers Viet Nguyen, Jo’se Reyes and Amir Taghi, and continues through Friday. Houston designers Peck and Chloe Dao will showcase their designs on Thursday night.
