ONE OF MIAMI'S favorite retailers has relocated to Houston.

Rosangela Capobianco, whose Capo Couture sources hard-to-find Brazilian clothing and jewels, has been based in H-Town for years. Now she’s moving her beautiful pop-up events at The St. Regis, starting Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 17 and 18. “We will be featuring Brazilian brands and artists that will influence a new era of fashion,” according to Capo.

Unique jewelry pieces use gems from mines in South Africa and Brazil that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. Important Brazilian artists will also be featured.

“We carry more than 20 different Brazilian designers and a few more from South America and the U.S.,” according to the website. “In fact, we search the entire continent for top-of-the-line brands to enhance our selection. We bring a mix of well-known top designers and some new, fresh and talented upcoming artists that are new to the fashion scene.”

Capobianco founded Capo with her sister-in-law, Joanna Amado. Their main storefront is in Miami.

Pieces on offer include Sophia Hegg’s pastel bohemian dresses and tops, Al Mare’s sophisticated bikinis, Priscilla Whitaker’s colorful sandals, Sy & Vie’s artistic handbags and Andrea Bogosian’s sexy shorts sets.

PER THE FABULOUS annual tradition, Cotton Holdings and its founder, Pete Bell, opened Rodeo season in lavish style with its VIP bash at the 50th Annual World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest, also known simply as “Cook-Off.” The food-and-drink-savvy festival-within-a-festival, which kicks off the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, draws cowboys and cowgirls in designer duds — think denim and diamonds and perfectly fitted Stetsons — for raucously good fun.

ALWAYS A STUNNING evening, Asia Society Texas' Tiger Ball celebrated the beauty and diversity of Asian culture. Gold-flecked tablescapes, plants and gowns ensured that the glam, tented affair was absolutely glimmering — just like Tiger Ball chairs Chinhui and Eddie Allen and Heidi and David Gerger, as the event raised an impressive $1.5 million for AST's efforts to build a more inclusive community in Houston.
