What: Houston Ballet Nutcracker Market Macy's fashion show and holiday brunch with an island theme.

Where: NRG Center.

The 411: While the credit card machines whirled at warp speed on ground level at the Nutcracker Market on Friday, on the second level of the vast exhibition space, fashion-minded shoppers took a break to settle in for a festive brunch and a riotous fashion show.

Holiday party clothes shared the runway with tropical togs in a nod to the "Nutcracker Market in Paradise" theme. KTRK Channel 13's Natasha Barrett emceed the event that played out to island-themed holiday tunes as models paraded in a variety of looks ranging from Tommy Hilfiger and Tommy Bahama to Betsey Johnson and Calvin Klein.

Taking bows for the successful event, which included guys in holiday boxers and Santa hats, were brunch chairs Cynthia Christ, Megan Kessler and Tracey Williford. 

Who: Market chair Cecilia Campbell, Macy's Gary Hudgins and Liz Ambriz, Lenny Matuszewski, Philamena Baird, Shawn Stephens, Cherri Carbonara, Denise Malone, Evelyn Lightman, Katrina Amim and Kaylon Phillips.
