CZAR by Cesar Galindo Spring/Summer 2015

 (photo by Michael Ramsey)

Cesar Galindo mastered another beautiful collection this season in The Hub at the Hudson Hotel for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week! We spotted beautifully draped pieces, fluid metallic, colorful mosaic patterns and embellished sequin, and a now signature hoodie reminiscent of his last collection. The makeup reflected beautifully lined eyes in a shade of marine blue with contrasting strawberry pink lips. The hair this season included gorgeous, intricate braids dipped with a metallic touch.

Our models definitely enjoyed their trip to the Big Apple and we are so happy for the opportunity to have them once again be a part of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

Until next time New York!


It's the end of New York Fashion Week, but that doesn't mean the party has to stop! This season, the fashionable elite of Houston made their way to the invitation-only VIP Simon Fashion Show (presented by Cadillac, Vogue, and PaperCity) at the Galleria. This year, the show was opened by Cara Crowley, Associate Director of Special Events at Vogue alongside the adorable actress Ashley Madekwe (of Revenge and Salem).

Let's go behind the scenes to see the making of the show!

After sipping on great cocktails, audience members quickly took their seats to enjoy the show. The runway show was opened by Saks Fifth Avenue with model Alyssa Pasek wearing a beautiful Diane Von Furstenberg wrap gown. She surprised and stunned the front row by donning digital gold wings before gracing the catwalk. Followed were models displaying edgy, black outfits accented with metallic gold touches.

Next up was newly opened boutique John Varvatos and boy did the audience go wild. Who doesn't love our Page Parkes men outfitted in London-cool, edgy looks? We spotted shades of eggplant on Alex Shanklin, amazing distressed leather outerwear on John Perez, and the most covetable leather backpack.

From Carolina Hererra, St. John, and Missoni, we were given different luxe ways to approach the cooler weather and evening affairs. St. John focused on staple boucle jackets, a beautifully draped cobalt blue poncho on Holly Draper, and a patterned poncho made chic with satin sweatpants worn by Nicole Kaspar. We would expect nothing less than colorful, eye-catching knits from Missoni, but were quite surprised with the fun mix of punk and quirky footwear. We especially loved the shearling accents on Caitlin Ricketts! Shades of red dominated Carolina Hererra's looks and all eyes were on Winnie Omoleme in her gorgeous gown fit for the MET Gala.

Nida rocks a monochromatic, cozy look perfect for Fall.

It seems every time the men enter the stage the crowd starts another uproar. What can we say? We love our Page Parkes men! This time, the boys were fitted in sharp Zegna suits and cozy, classic knits.

Closing the show was Neiman Marcus! We noticed intricate lace detailing on Suzie Ford, soft shades of gray on Allyson Cook, and a sleek McQueen ensemble worn by Michael Brown. Of course, everyone gasped when the finale look (a pastel pink taffeta Oscar De La Renta confection), worn by Katelynn Denney, swept the runway.

We're obsessed with this down-town chic look on Caitlin.

We can't get over the princess effect of this ODLR dress on Katelynn!

What an amazing show! We couldn't be more proud of our stylist Leslie Rivas Kelly and following models for working the runway: Alex Shanklin, Allyson Cook, Alyssa Pasek, Ashlee Disney, Brooke Adams, Caitlin Ricketts, Christi Schaefer, Dwayne Daniels, Holly Draper, Isabelle Victoria, John Perez, Katelynn Denney, Katie Moore, Kelsie Moody, Landon Wasem, Lindsey Schultz, Nida Khurshid, Marion Sealy, Michael Brown, Nicole Kaspar, Randy Valle, Ross Davidson, Sabrina Nicole, Shiloh McDuff, Suzie Ford, Taylor Dixon, Vicki McCarty, and Winnie Omoleme.

We also hoped you did not miss the new concept of a live built-in-closet "Lookbook Live" arranged by GQ and Glamour the day after the VIP show! Our audience was able to interact with the style experts Kiersten Geiger from Glamour and Sabir Peele of Men's Style Pro along with Houston bloggers Issa Chou from We Wear Things  and Mishelle Echeverria from Houstonista. Our models for the evening Alex, Alyssa, Brooke, Marion, Randy, and Ross displayed this season's trends (Shades of Blue, Shearling, Blazer 2.0, Gymwear, etc.) from retailers like Macy's, Guess, Banana Republic, and Armani Exchange.
