What: Passion for Fashion VIP cocktail party honoring Christian Siriano.
Where: Elizabeth Anthony.
The scoop: Supporters of the Houston Community College fashion design program gathered with Houston's style crowd to welcome the former Project Runway winner who has established a thriving international business with a big-time celebrity clientele. The 30-year-old designer had just flown in from Paris, where he showed his fall collection to European retailers, and was on his way to Ireland for a fashion photo shoot after leaving Houston. Siriano was the featured guest at the Passion for Fashion luncheon, honoring HCC, at River Oaks Country Club.
Though jet-lagged, Siriano rallied for a Tex Mex dinner at Aňejo with Elizabeth Anthony owner Julie Roberts, Passion for Fashion chairs Jeff Shell and Ally Shell van Kollwijk, and HCC division chair of Lifestyle, Arts & Design Careers Suzette Brimmer, after the cocktail party ended.
Who: Spotted in the crowd were Beth Muecke, Stacey Lindseth, Myrtle Jones, Parissa Mohajer, Mahzad Mohajer, Mary Bowman, Anika Jackson, Roz Pactor, Kay King, Houston Community College Foundation president Shawn Taylor, Carmen Williams, Kimberly Beatty, Sally Lechin, Tania Miranda, Janus Lazaris, Edward Sanchez, Fritz MacDonald, Deborah Elias, and Angel Rios.
