Our trio of featured fashion extravaganzas culminates with the annual Fashion X Houston at River Oaks District from October 4-6.

NYFW might have ended last week, but there's still plenty going on here in the dirty South. So much so that, starting right now, one could conceivably attend a style-related event nearly every day for the rest of the month (and beyond). That said, it's easy for even the most dedication fashionistas among us to lose track; to help, here's a roadmap to three upcoming offerings.

Fashion X Houston
