1. A Couture Cause Co-creators, local lifestyle bl
Around 200 guests came to Station 3 last Thursday night for the third annual A Couture Cause launch party debuting its inaugural 2016 Trend Guide, a 50-page coffee table book featuring 25 of Houston's brightest trendsetters including young entrepreneurs, philanthropists and artists who came together for charity. Co-created by local lifestyle blogger, Lyndsey Zorich, and photographer, Traci Ling, the duo collaborated with Houston’s top designers and boutiques, including Tootsies, The Vintage Contessa, Atrium, and Monkees, to showcase their top 2016 fashion picks on an incredible group of models paired with an iconic Houston landmark.
Houston’s finest enjoyed a fun, fashion-forward evening supporting two local nonprofits, the Youth Hope Association and Amschwand Sarcoma Cancer Foundation. 100 percent of the ticket sales, a silent auction and Perrier-Jouet champagne for $75 per glass all benefited the two charities, which raised more than $50,000.
Guests enjoyed wine and cocktails generously donated by Alma Rosa Winery, Absolute Elyx + Sweet and William Grant & Sons along with light bites by B&B Butchers & Restaurant, Chef Claire Rinaldi, Chef Will Gilcriest, B Pop and Events by Momo. The party goers departed with a copy of the coveted trend guide, but not before dancing the night away to tunes by jazz singer/pianist, Charlie Edwards, and DJ Lewis Grell.
