Onward Fashion Houston
The Grove deck rocked with fashionistas looking ahead to the catwalk frolic
If the rocking Fashion Houston party at The Grove Wednesday night was any indication, next week's four-day catwalk frolic at Wortham Theater Center could be a load of energized fun.
At this advance fete, key players in the Audi-sponsored event — Jared Lang, Bambi Lynn, Rob Rutherford, Nancy Golden and Erica Garza — beat the drums for the city's first homegrown, multi-faceted fashion extravaganza.
The Grove party, hosted by Houston Magazine, began just in time for the setting sun to provide a stunning backdrop as it reflected off of the downtown skyscrapers. The October weather was perfect for al fresco schmoozing. DJ spins sounded across the wide open deck. Drinks were generously poured. And the party people — many with Houston fashion scene connections — whooped it up.
Cerón, who will be providing hair styling for the four nights of runway shows through his Cerón Salon, mingled in the group that included designer David Peck, Lexis Florist's Miriam Habib, salon owner Michael Kemper, artist Hanh Tran, jazz vocalist Kristine Mills, Dentiq's Cody Heath and new-to-town fashion designersEmmanuel Eloundou and J'Antae Hall.
Welcoming the 200 guests who packed the second-level deck were hosts Lou DeLone and Jeff Gremillion.
The revelers included Bellaire City Councilman and man-about-town Corbett Parker, Rowena Sahulee, Don Mafrige, Jamie Collier, Tammy Dowe, Myra Wilson, Maren Silberstein, Mark Sullivan and country singer/songwriter George Ducas, a Houston native who calls Nashville home. (Ducas had performed at the House of Blues on Tuesday.)
