EVENT RECAP: 'Fashion on the Ave' Runway Show & After Party
Last Wednesday was a whirlwind evening for me. I was invited to 4 events and all 4 of them I wanted to attend. So instead of just picking one to go to and missing out on the other 3, I decided to test my superpowers and attend all 4!! Miraculously I made it to all 4 events, with the last one being West Ave Houston's 'Fashion on the Ave' fashion show. The premise of the event was to invite the elite of the Houston Fashion Industry and Media to come out and see the latest offerings from all the boutiques located in the West Ave Shopping Center. When I arrived I caught my blogger buddy and Houstonia Magazine writer, Sarah Theresa across the way sitting front row so I snuck in next to her to catch the rest of the show. The event was sponsored by Audi Central Houston, Deep Eddy V Vodka & Mutual of Omaha Bank with proceeds of the event going to the Cancer Forward society. After the fashion show, there was an after party upstairs at the furniture store Ligne Roset.
The boutiques that participated in the fashion show were: Ivannia, Ivory Bridal Atelier, Sam and Lilli, Langford Market, Q Clothier, Rye 51, St. Nicola, Suit Supply, Stash & Co, & Tootsies. The makeup and the hair for the models were done by Azur West and Edward Sanchez Vanity Lounge.
The after party, as previously mentioned, was held at contemporary furniture store Ligne Roset. I loved the pieces inside, and it was the perfect setting for a party, with tons of places to sit and opportunities for photo ops, which Sarah indulged ourselves in. There was even a fashionable puppy, named Isabella, that graced us with her presence.

|This coffee table is really cool, but would not be functional for me! Things would fall through the center every few seconds! I'd have to have it in a room where I wasn't planning to use it! lol|

|Isabella and her 'Doggles'! Goggles that are specially made for pups? I've seen it all, but she sure was fancy!|
|Thanks Sarah for this cute shot of me!|
|She looks good from the back!|
