Doing It For The Culture


On Sunday as most Houstonians were probably recovering from the celebratory week of the Atros winning the World Series, the STRUT crew started the day with the fist Sunday monthly STRUT Brunch, followed by attending the Fashion Group International Houston Rising Runway Show + Fundraiser.

We enjoyed a night of true Houston spirit, with an evening of Houston creatives sharing their talents to benefit the Houston Galveston Institute and Houston Furniture Bank  for their work with Hurricane Harvey relief[1].

 

The first to hit the runway, and only men’s ware line of the evening was Jamel Hawk. The up and coming dynamic duo showcasing their new collection! They combine luxury, athleisure, and streetware, with close attention to fit and construction, they bring a silhouette that highlights the male physique! With hidden details created for the lifestyle of the modern man.

Claire Drennan made her runway debut showing her collection “Electric Quietude.” Drennan’s sustainable cotton knitwear flowed down the runway creating a feeling of warmth and whimsy, as her designs are a staple to any Houstonian winter wardrobe.

Steve Guthrie showed classic cuts with a pop of flare, for that subtle, I didn’t have to try to hard, chic vibe.

I had an up close look at the Veronica Cheri collection, and let’s just say I want it all! A beautiful blend of textures and attitude with an homage to London mod.

86&90 is pushing the boundaries with their innovative choice of materials, while at the same time being on trend and ready to wear!

A pleasant surprise sprinkled into the mix of designers was Renegade Bridal. I know what you’re thinking…a bunch of boring white wedding dresses. Myself being, a never married, single, never dreamt of my wedding, self proclaimed new age woman, I am not usually intrigued by wedding gowns.  Much to my surprise, pops of color and innovative use of florals, this collection is clearly designed to bring life’s traditional celebrations to the present, with unconventional options for the modern and empowered woman!
