3 Ways to Celebrate Houston Fashion This Season

This time of year, it's easy for even the most dedicated fashionistas among us to lose track.

By Abby Ledoux September 17, 2018

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

  • What: A three-night series of high-end runway shows from a slew of names, including River Oaks District retailers (like Alice + Olivia and Stella McCartney), local designers (including Chloe Dao and Miles David) and more to benefit local charities, plus in-store events and promos each night from 5–7 p.m.
  • When: Thursday, October 4–Sunday, October 6
  • Where: River Oaks District, 4444 Westheimer Rd.
