Jerri Moore at Fashion Houston

The Vintage Contessa not only helped accessorize Chloe Dao's collection during Fashion Houston, but also Jerri Moore, a Houston designer who knows how to mix sweet with sassy, as she debuted her spring 2013 collection.
Her collection was filled with flowing skirts and blouses that billowed as the models worked the runway.



The fabrics she uses and the detailing throughout each piece truly separates Jerri Moore from the rest of the pack. 



Thank you, Jerri, for allowing The Vintage Contessa to help complete your looks at Fashion Houston. It was more than amazing!

Chloe Dao at Fashion Houston


Chloe Dao, Houston fashion designer and Project Runway Season 2 Winner, showcased her new line of luxurious styles at this year's Fashion Houston.
Her well-executed, high-end collection allowed attendees to see a different side of the her personality. With luxe fabrics and mature designs, Chloe raised the bar when it comes to Texas designers.



The playfulness that she exudes in real-life was also evident in her pieces that not only gave off a mature vibe, but a fun one, as well. Maturity doesn't have to mean boring, right?


This red dress was by far my favorite piece in the collection. It's flirty, but stunning. 


I was truly honored to have been chosen by Chloe to help accessorize her pieces for the night. The vintage jewelry married perfectly with her modern outlook adding value to each one that made it's way down the catwalk. It was a fabulous experience that will never be forgotten in my mind. 


Thank you Chloe for making Fashion Houston such a wonderful experience for The Vintage Contessa.

Les Copains... Milano, Italy

Milan Fashion Week's perfectly ordered 70 degree sun shining day was a welcomed backdrop to the amazing architecture of the Domo further setting the stage for fabulously edited and styled Les Copains Spring Summer 2013 runway show. Following the pink carpet down the cobblestone path, we entered a grande cathedral like setting filled with energy and anticipation in the air. The excitment of watching and photographing the hightly fashionable guests arrive was only surpassed by the Spring Summer line designed by the famed Allesandro Dell'Acqua.

The energetic line hit a high note with geometric patterns in bold black and whites, infused with intense colors of blue and orange. A hightly stylized yet wearable line of lovely ladylike luxe pieces showed a sassy and contemporary flair.



The mix of patterns and color were fresh and light, offering the perfect silhouette for models as they sashed down the runway. Playful skirts, exposed backs, handmade knits and structured detailing were the perfect balance for the feminine body.



I loved the statement by Best Dressed fashionista and acclaimed interior designer, Lucinda Loya, who traveled from Houston to Milan for the show, " The line showed detailed sophistication with a lot of pretty and a little bit of edge." She and I were thrilled to see it live from the front row!




We are so grateful for the amazing hospitality of our fabulously composed and stylish host, Paolo Viera, CEO of Les Copains. From an amazing meals, front row seats, back stage pass and introductions to his highly acclaimed staff, I felt swept away from the moment I arrived in Milan.
