Project Runway, NYE Edition, powered by NishaDaDiva Productions, Ashton Ent., and Eskay Entertainment was held at Xclusive Lounge on the Southwest side of Houston. The event was hosted by SynCity with a performance by Houston's own ItsJusBrittany. Ladies and Gentleman, immediately, I was drawn in. I am not certain if it was the host, showing me to VIP swagged up in a classic, yet modern blazer, with his fedora perfectly fitting his head or if it was the atmosphere. Whatever it was, it had me tight and refused to let me go. The club was the traditional dark with blue lighting, its upstairs Miami style lighting and VIP area, and what I like to call "Lady Cage"; set the mood right! Guests came dressed to impress, closing 2010 out with a fashion bang. The bar was flooded with patrons and the $4 dollar you call its, had us all feeling good. Aside from this posh atmosphere, and anticipation of New Years, we were all there for something more: Project Runway 2011 NYE Edition.
The fashion show featured Tina Marie Fashions and Designs, Torrid Fashions and TMills. Each designer brought their eclectic collections and showed the audience their fashion forwardness for 2011. Tina Marie's designs inspired by California style included, the corset and ruffles. TMills, brought us Brooklyn , NY and designs are military-inspired, vintage style gear. Finally, Torrid Fashions brought in something for the Thick and Lovely Ladies of the world. Her designs included club wear, Sassy office wear and halters inspired by the Preps. The models for each designer represented well and brought their A-Game to the runway. These designers clearly weren't preparing for merely a Project Runway show, they are more than ready for International runways. Hats off to these Trend-Setting Trail Blazers.
If you missed this, which, I am certain ALL of Houston was in attendance, you missed 1 HELL OF A SHOW!
