ONE OF THE city's best-known names in fashion-show events is returning to the spotlight this week. Jared Lang, who for five years was the front man for the glitzy, red-carpeted, multi-night style shows branded as Fashion Houston and held at the Wortham Center, will present a scaled-down spin on the concept on Thursday, Nov. 18.


Now Lang is bringing Fashion Houston back to the runway. Lang's one-night event is intended as a prelude to an expanded event in the future. It's "powered" by his Making Muves firm, which offers branding, event management and other services, he says. He has partnered in the venture with Remy Toh, a Houston-based stylist and image consultant for clients including professional athletes and entertainers.

This week's event will take place on the Rise Rooftop in Midtown and feature fashions by Chloe Dao, Raul Penaranda, Jose Sanchez, Alain Chaps, Alexandria Lee Designs and Meredith Marks. Celeb makeup artist Derrick Rutledge will also be on hand.

"We gained national and worldwide recognition," says Lang of his previous endeavor, "and we hosted over 150 world-renowned designers. We were able to come together as a city and celebrate fashion in a special way."

Lang says to expect more of the same with Fashion Houston. "Our goal is to continue what we started and show the world that Houston is a fashion destination. This year's show will not disappoint, as we again showcase designers not only from Houston but from New York City and Mexico City to Venezuela."

Duos, Trios and Teams: ‘Next-Generation’ Mother-Daughter Leppert Duo Debuts

Clare Leppert and Clementine, the Cavachon. Leigh Leppert and Benny, the Bernedoodle.

HOW DID YOU come together as a team? This fall, we are celebrating the introduction of an exciting real estate collaboration between Clare Leppert, longtime Houston Realtor®, and daughter Leigh Leppert. Clare shared a 20+ year real estate partnership with her mother, Bette Carpenter, until Bette’s death in 2016. Having worked solo for several years, Clare in 2021 was awarded Houston Business Journal’s No. 2 Luxury Realtor® in Houston. Leigh, who has been working in marketing for the past decade, has always shared a passion for real estate and watched Clare successfully balance family and career. We are excited to re-create the next generation of a mother-daughter duo at Compass!

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
