WHAT: Simon Fashion Now presented by Cadillac
WHO: Fashion Designers and Collections from Fendi, Jimmy Choo, Max Mara, Neiman Marcus, Macy’s and more…
WHEN: September 8th 2011
WHERE: The Galleria, Houston, Texas
FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: In spite of all the flash mob dancers, pyrotechnics, confetti, vamp dance acts and other shenanigans, the clothes and shoes from Fendi and Jimmy Choo were the highlights of the show which was scheduled to begin at 8pm but did not get underway until much later. Spring/Summer 2012 looks very promising with lots of tailored mini skirt suits, knee-high boots, fur (if you choose to wear it) , peep-toe strappy shoes, fascinators, lots of colour and more. This was my first time at the Galleria and I must say the mall was pretty impressive on its own without adding the FASHION NOW effect. I only wish I could have stayed in town longer to see the skating rink within the mall which was converted into a runway for the fashion shows. The Houston fashion scene, which is pretty much new to the Fashion’s Night Out scene as celebrated the world over, earns a C+ from me because I certainly found myself missing New York City.
