A Visual Story Of Naeem Khan

“Every designer needs a story. Mine is all about glamour.” ~ Naeem Khan Michelle Harris & Portia di Rossi Kate Hudson Holland Roden Nicole Richie Kate Beckinsale Padma Lakshmi The dress that made Khan the third most Googled person in the world that day. If you’re as big a fan of his couture creations as I am, you need to be at Fashion Houston.  Now in its fifth year, Fashion Houston will be held at the Wortham Theater Center from 18th to 21st November 18th BUT you don’t need to wait that long to pore over and covet beautiful pieces. No, you don’t.  As I’ve mentioned before, if you love fashion and you’re in Houston, you have to be at the Kick-Off Party, Friday night.  All proceeds from the night shall be channelled towards Dress For Success Houston.  Say it with me, altruism is sexy. Tickets on sell here.   Love, Sheela

Having moved to Houston a scant four years ago, let me be the first to confess I’m still navigating my way around the local fashion scene.  Trying to identify pockets of creative dressing in between the Lincolns and the dressed-from-head-to-toe-in-one-colour figures (if you live in the area, I know you know what I’m talking about).  Finding that refreshing spurt of spontaneous freestyling amidst the clones. And it’s been hard.  It’s been really hard.  At the risk of death by faux diamond pelting, the style environment here is vastly different from what I’d been used to (I lived in Singapore for over ten years, with frequent work travels to Hong Kong and Japan where, when it came to dressing, everyone was tolerant and experimentative and fearless). That is, until I discovered the Houston Fashion Bloggers.  This wondrous community has opened my eyes to what’s really happening when it comes to fashion in the heart of Texas.  Reminded me to dig deeper and look where I wouldn’t normally.  I love that.  And it’s also thanks to them …
