No yoga pants and tanks at this DEFINE Body & Mind happening. For one night only, the fashion focus was on designer labels and dapper duds as studio owners Henry Richardson and Erin O'Leary Stewart celebrated the opening of their West University barre exercise studio.

Few in this fit crowd, however, seemed in need of any serious physical regimens. Perhaps they were already members of the DEFINE family.

Exhibiting a good neighbor policy, proceeds from retail sales and memberships on this night were dedicated to Friends of West University Place Parks

Showing off the full versatility of the new space, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres from The Eighteenth Cocktail Bar were served out of the studio's kitchen. Look for O'Leary Stewart to teach workshops and cooking classes there.

Among guests checking out the studio and its new-concept indoor cycling space were James Stewart, Monsour Taghdisi, Rebecca Spera, Scott Evans, Catherine York, Annsley Popov, Carolyn Farb, Ana Ramirez, Anne and Chris Richardson, Kelly Turner and David Armendariz.
