FASHION HOUSTON: Wes Gordon Joins Line-UpTuesday, November 05, 2013
Fashion darling Wes Gordon will close out the final evening of Fashion Houston at the Wortham Theater Center on November 15, 2013--joining more than a dozen top name designers and emerging talents for the whirlwind week of fashion activities.
The New York-based Gordon is a fast rising star whose designs bring the classic sophistication of his native Georgia to the glittering glamor of Manhattan, and his youthful, couture-like collections with a modern edge are being widely praised critically for their uptown/downtown balane. He attended the competitive Central Saint Martins University of Art and Design, taking time between semesters to study with Oscar de la Renta and Tom Ford, refining his classic-meets-edgy aesthetic. A favorite of young celebrities, Gordon's looks can be seen on the red carpets around the globe on media favorites Katy Perry, and Jessica Alba, and is a favorite of First Lady Michelle Obama. Gordon has received mnumerous critical accolades and awards, including being named "Best Newcomer in Womenswear" in 2010 by Harrods magazine, and in 2012, awarded the "Rising Star Award" by Fashion Group International.
Gordon will close out the final evening of runway shows, which kicks off at the Wortham Theater Center on November 12, 2013. The new Friday, November 15 lineup now features Johanna Johnson kicking off the evening, followed by menswear designer Zachary Prell, then bohemian chic designs by Haute Hippie, with Gordon's ready to wear collection closing out the evening (and week) of runway shows.
