Houston’s Fashion for Good runway event (formerly Fashion X) is a two-night runway event featuring Texas-based designers. I attended the first night the first night “Haute Dogs and Fancy Cats” and it was so much fun!
Models and local personalities strutted the catwalk in full fashions and with their fave furry pets!
Houston’s Fashion For Good is the leading fashion event producer in Texas and beyond. With a heavy emphasis on emerging designers, Houston’s Fashion For Good aims to connect these designers direct to consumers and boutique buyers. Fashion For Good supports sustainable and ethical brands, as well as runway inclusion, giving back, and accessibility. Runway events included traditional models intermixed with models of all ages, sizes, ethnicities, genders and abilities. Featured labels and designers such as David Peck, Project Runway’s Korto Momolu, Mysterious by NPN, Baus Noir, Miss Robinson and recent Project Runway contestant Lela Orr of Ferrah to name a few, are socially responsible and work to minimize their footprint on the world. Fashion for Good provides a platform for up-and-coming designers while giving back to nonprofit organizations at every event – donating a portion of proceeds from each ticket sale.
“We are working to redefine the conversation around the fashion industry, and we are so excited to bring that message to the Houston fashion community this fall,” said Matt Swinney, CEO and Producer of Fashion For Good. “We will have important discussions around sustainable and ethical brands and celebrate diversity with runway shows that will feature models of all kinds as well as designers that are using fashion as a force for good.”
November 14th — Haute Dogs & Fancy Cats: Fashion show featuring local influencers accompanied by their furry, four-legged friends who will strut on the “dog” and/or catwalk. The event will benefit Rescued Pets Movement, a Houston-based organization dedicated to providing a second chance to thousands of homeless dogs and cats through rehabilitation and transport to forever homes in the United States and Canada.
