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."

HOW DID YOU get where you are today? The EMS industry, quite literally, never stops. Our staff and units are called to serve our community every hour of every day; there are no weekends, holidays, or “days off.” Obviously, the demands of EMS are not for the faint of heart, and we have established a culture of service and accountability that is different than nearly every other organization. Our leadership team sets this culture by exhibiting their passion for this industry daily. Their tireless dedication makes a better experience for our staff when they come to work and for our patients and clients when they call on us to transport their loved ones.
