Houston Gets “Carried” Away

Sarah Jessica Parker makes special visit to showcase Fall SJP collection.

With Sarah Pendley August 22, 2014

Actor-turned-fashion designer Sarah Jessica Parker made an appearance Thursday at Nordstrom Houston Galleria to present her Fall 2014 SJP Collection. Hundreds of shoppers, some of whom arrived as early as 5 a.m., lined up for a chance to meet the fashion icon.

Roars erupted when she finally appeared in front of the crowd to pose for photos and sign people's purchases. It's should be noted that she also went out of her way to chat with every fashion enthusiast about what they purchased from her collection. Parker unveiled her collection in February and the debut fall line includes flats and boots and heels at various heights, as well as shoes and handbags in fresh colors such as purples, jewel tones, and burgundies.

“Hopefully there’s a shoe for everyone,” Parker said. 

Asked about her thoughts on Houston, Parker reflected on some memorable moments.

“So far it’s been lovely,” she said. “Everyone has been so nice and we had a couple of milestones here. We did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge [and] we hit 200,000 followers on our SJP Collection.”
