It was a rainy Thursday evening, but that didn’t stop Houston’s fashionista crowd from trekking out to the Bayou City Events Center for Project Glam- a one night fashion and beauty event that is open to the public. The event was hosted by CBS Radio’s Mix 96.5 and featured local vendors, VIP beauty treatments, accessories, product samples and style consultations, giveaways, exclusive offers and sweepstakes prizes. Vendors this year included: Amerejuve, Avon, Bedroom Kandi/Naughty Girl, Bootights, Color by Amber, Dao Chloe Dao, Deeter Mazda, Dice, Dulce Vida, Edward Sanchez, Evamor, Glam Boutique, Haute Chic Boutique, Houston Texans, Jamberry Nails, King of Luxe Paris, La Vie, Lavo Collections, Lola G, Mary Kay, Niagara Water, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Page Parkes, Personal Safety, Pomp & Circumstance, Rebel Rise, Rodan-Felds, Silver Eagle, South Hill Designs, Stiletto Stampede, Supple Skin, The Rose, Tie and Fashion Guy, Vida Antigua/Yoko Vintage, Woody’s Furs, Wrapped in Wellness and Your Nail Palace.
My favorite vendors of the evening were: Lola G Boutique, Pomp & Circumstance, Rebel Rise, Dao Chloe Dao and Vida Antigua/Yoko Vintage. I immediately hit it off with Lola G‘s owner- Gisela, as she’s a fellow Los Angeles native. I also learned about portable pop-up dressing rooms when I saw that she (and several other vendors) had one at the event. Her inventory included trendy pieces that she felt she would bring a taste of LA to Houston. Pomp & Circumstance– another local Houston boutique offered exceptional jewelry, like the “Sophie” layered necklaces and the “Saint Benedict”- which has a vintage rosary pendant with St. Benedict on it. There were also other cute accessories and clothing in their stash as well. Rebel Rise gave shoppers a taste of statement jewelry. Dao Chloe Dao is a local boutique owned by Project Runway alum- Chloe Dao. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to meet her, but I saw that she had some of her designs, as well as clothing and accessories from the boutique on hand for shoppers. Lastly, Vida Antigua and Yoko Vintage were on hand, sharing a booth and showcasing their best vintage sequins, prints and wildly awesome accessories.
The highlight of the event was fashion show. It was hosted by three of Mix 96.5’s radio personalities and spotlighted several looks from a variety of the vendors there. It was styled by top Houston stylist- Todd Ramos.
Thank you for having me and I can’t wait for next year’s event!
