Hot Fashion Makes the Cover: ‘Unabashed’ CityBook Touts Spring Style

THE SPRING EDITION of Houston CityBook magazine will hit newsstands next week, with a showstopping fashion cover, the magazine said.


"Spring fashion has rarely felt so important and engaging," says Editor in Chief Jeff Gremillion. "After the year everyone has had with Covid and more recently the severe winter storm, it feels so good to put out a magazine that boldly and unabashedly points up the coming of a new season. It's time."

The cover image — which features a model in a flowing, nearly-neon fuchsia gown by Valentino, in a spare industrial environment — was shot by photographer Jhane Hoang with styling by Leslie Rivas, on location in a working warehouse space in EaDo.

CityBook Creative Director Patrick Magee explains the setup: "Jhane scouted the great location for this shoot, which turned out to be the workspace for the cool business Rootlab. She turned this working construction site into a magical spot to highlight the best of spring fashion! We love the message of the Valentino gown — a bright spot in a dark time."

Rootlab is a design group that creates custom architectural elements and furniture for both commercial and residential spaces.

The vivid Valentino gown has turned out to be very popular this season. Actress Zendaya dons it the current issue of Vanity Fair.

The Spring 2021 issue of Houston CityBook will begin hitting newsstands and subscriber mailboxes throughout the city in a few days.
