Our friends at Simon are doing it again in exactly two weeks! Not only have they launched a complete re-brand, but have mixed up their new Fall plan in some amazing ways! After an incredible eight year run, the Simon Fashion Now Tour has officially come to an end.... all good things, right? 

 But now in the Fall, they are rolling out a new program called Look Book Live brought to you by the experts at Vogue, GQ, and Glamour! This amazing event will take place at eleven malls across the country. And of course, the lavish Houston Galleria Show (the crown jewel of this retail royal) will be a sight to see!

Stay tuned for more details, but pencil in your calendar for Thursday Sept. 11th as they turn the Polar Ice Rink into the city's hottest mega-glam fashion extravaganza*. It always has, and always will be, the show not to miss!

In addition, don't forget to reserve the Friday (Sept. 12) after the show for the new styling exhibition called "The Live Lounge"! There will be a fabulous closet with a panel that features GQ, Glamour, and local fashion experts giving out exclusive insight on this season's trends!

 *Admission to the show is by invite-only, but public viewing is available on the upper levels. 

 Now we take a look back at some of our favorite memories of the Simon Fashion Now Tour!

David Peck x JW Marriott Downtown!

In a world full of monotony when it comes to uniforms in the hospitality industry, leave it to Houston designer David Peck to shake things up. With the J.W. Marriott being one of the most highly anticipated hotels to be opened in Downtown Houston, David took the opportunity to do something unique: creating a different number of stylish outfits for the hotel's 250 employees to wear!

David produced beautifully tailored, classic ensembles for the women and teamed up with SuitSupply and Hamilton Shirts to create dapper suited looks for the men. In the collection you will find glorious shades of cobalt blue, classic patterns using charcoal grey, architectural graphic prints, and his signature color blocking.

The official Lookbook will be released shortly, but check out the video below to see special behind-the-footage. For more information, also check out Culturemap's article here!

66th Annual Emmys 2014!

We hope you were able to catch the 66th Annual Emmys last night and see all of the coveted outfits on the red carpet! If not, look no further!

 Red is the New Black: From shades of cherry, scarlet, coral, crimson, and wine, the red dress definitely made a statement. We love all of the different silhouettes and embellishments as well. Embracing this fiery color were Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Carolina Hererra, Claire Danes in Givenchy, Kaley Cuoco in Monique Lhuillier, and Minnie Driver and Christina Hendricks both in Marchesa.

Best Dressed: We also applaud the ladies who decided to take a risk such as the charismatic Julia Roberts in a beautifully beaded Elie Saab, fashionista Kerry Washington in a unique Prada number, and the elegant Michelle Dockery in a tri-colored Rosie Assoulin gown. We also cannot forget the two ladies who always know what works best for their figure! Sophia Vergara stuns in a white sexy Roberto Cavalli gown while Lizzie Caplan remains timeless in a Donna Karan Atelier black and white dress.

We definitely are proud of all of our talented Texans who were nominated: Robin Wright, Jim Parsons, Woody Harrelson, and Matthew McConaughey. Jim Parsons won his fourth award as a lead actor in a Comedy series!

The night was completed by the hit show Breaking Bad scoring a majority of the victories for the second year. Way to go Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, and Vince Gilligan for the well-deserved wins! Perfect way to say farewell to a phenomenal series.

#ModelMonday: Romina von Mohr!

Our #ModelMonday goes out to model and rockstar musician Romina von Mohr! Romina has been modeling for Page Parkes for a long time and is now a singer and bass player for the band Crashing Colors. Here is your chance to get to know this talented and gorgeous individual a better!

1. How did you end up at Page Parkes and how has she helped you on your journey?
I heard about Page Parkes through a friend years ago. I got signed with the agency very young, and reached out to Page through Facebook. Page and all my amazing agents have helped me develop as a model and understand how to be professional and successful in this industry.  One of my biggest influences so far has been Page's drive and personality; She knows how to bring out the fullest potential in everyone around her, me included.

2. What's it like playing for a band and what/who inspires your music creativity?
Playing in a band is crazy!!! I spend my time writing, playing and promoting Crashing Colors' music and interacting with eccentric and interesting people.  And it's an amazing feeling to be able connect with fans through music. What inspires my music creativity is knowing that with enough hard work, one day I will be able to influence a lot of people to be happy and do good things for our world.
3. How long have you been modeling for PP and what advice can you give to New Faces?
I did model camp at the Page Parkes school when I was 13 years old.  I am 19 now and its been a delightful journey so far. My advice for New faces is to remember to always be humble and honest with people. A smile really goes a long way to help you and your clients stay motivated and happy. Owning up to your mistakes shows that you are mature and confident. 

4. What's your favorite and least favorite thing in London?
My favorite thing about London was being surrounded by so many fascinating people. All of my friends there were of different races and nationalities. In a melting pot of culture, I always felt inspired and proud of my Mexican roots.  My least favorite thing was without a doubt the Winter....... Although the city was always bustling, I found the cold very tough to face. So to overcome it, I basically hibernated and wrote loads of music until lovely Spring sunshine came and made me an extrovert once more.

5. What music school in London did you attend and what was it like going to school in another country?
I went to The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London and studied Songwriting. Going to school there was eye opening to the wondrous world of the music industry. The British really know how to write good songs, and that's why I chose to study there.  Also,  living in a 2 bedroom apartment with my 4 piece band was a learning experience of its own. We are essentially a family now. And I cant wait to show the world what Crashing Colors and I have accomplished in our year abroad.

We are so proud of Romina's accomplishments and love hearing about her journey from Page Parkes all the way to London! Don't forget to follow her band Crashing Colors on Facebook here!
