Upon moving back to her native Houston from New York, Jessie Dugan created a buzz with her layered designs, some inspired by local icons like the Menil Collection.


Now, the Parson’s School of Design grad — who cut her teeth creating pieces for Rag & Bone, Hendri Bendel and Tory Burch — has cultivated a dedicated following, and is eager to give back. Her holiday trunk show takes place this Friday, from 10am-12pm, at MDUMC’s Music and Arts Center, where Dugan teaches multimedia art.

Stock up on Dugan’s highly giftable personalized charms, cheeky statement necklaces (“dat ass,” “hashtag”) and more, all for a good cause: A portion of proceeds benefits the Music and Arts Center.

We've forgotten to listen to them,'" says Medrano quietly, sourcing a quote from the new documentary Truly Texas Mexican, which premieres March 1 on Amazon, Apple TV, Google TV and PBS stations across the country, and is inspired by his award-winning cookbook Truly Texas Mexican: A Native Culinary Heritage. "When you cook, you are dealing with a landscape," he explains. "Once you realize your connectiveness to the land and to each other, that is spirituality."
