- Fashion Houston: Nicole Miller ‘Just Wants to Have Fun’ -
Designer Nicole Miller closed out Night 2 of Fashion Houston with an energetic finale. As a Fashion Houston contributor, here’s my recap of her runway show from Fashion Houston’s blog.
Stripes, florals, lace details, and a print inspired by Versailles comprised designer Nicole Miller’s collection seen Night 2 of Fashion Houston. Models walked the runway with messy braids as headbands and shoes that complemented the collection.
The New York based, Texas born designer created pieces that are beautifully feminine while unique and edgy – sure to set any fashionista apart in a crowd. Black and white stripes were mixed with colorful florals, crop tops with high waisted skirts, and lace details adorning jackets, dresses, and frilly tops. Each garment contained design elements that flatter the female shape in modern silhouettes. Black and white stripes were even spotted on the back of the beautiful heels on the catwalk designed by Nicole Miller herself.
Miller’s backdrop for the lively show was a beautiful muted floral with columns and windows. Further emphasizing the feminine theme of the collection, the energetic finale had the crowd cheering as models danced down the runway in a group to Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” – such an exciting way to close out night 2! Dressing the country’s most fashionable since the 80’s, Nicole Miller continues to solidify with the style obsessed that her collection is still relevant, necessary in your closet, and on the top of shopping “must-have” lists season after season… especially with Spring 2014 seen at Fashion Houston!

How could you not love Karlie Kloss on the Burberry Prorsum runway at London Fashion Week? Sporting her short new do (which I saw up close leaving Lincoln Center at New York Fashion Week!!), Karlie made her Burberry runway debut. And, we adore the hearts seen in Christopher Bailey’s Fall 2013 collection that some are saying are inspired by the Instagram hearts :) ❤ Accompanying the heart prints in the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 collection were elegant column dresses and outwear covered in metal eyelets. As usual, Burberry’s classic style was beautiful & elegant & looked amazing on the top model!

- Audi Hosts Fashion Houston Kick-off -
Prior to Fashion Houston, Audi of Houston hosted Houston’s Young Professionals for a sneak peak at what was to come on the Fashion Houston runway with local designers David Peck, Jerri Moore, and Chloe Dao. I wore one of my favorite looks from the Fall 2012 CrOp by David Peck Collection while finding look after look that I wanted to add to my closet from the runway show. The top photo was from the CrOp Trunk Show at Tootsies, but the others are from the night of the kick-off. I love this dress especially for Houston fall/winter as we don’t have many cold days, but I can add tights and booties with a jacket for the few days of cold we actually have in the south. Chic cold weather ladies, don’t hesitate to add a knee high boot and an over-coat to stay warm and stylish! Your closet will thank you :)
Shop CrOp by David Peck and a portion of the proceeds always go to a charity that coordinates with each season.
