Men's Fashion Event

Fall fashion was in full swing in the Galleria — not only in its boutiques and dressing rooms, but at an exclusive event for dapper dudes co-hosted by Houston CityBook.


Upon arrival to the party, which took place in the Saks Fifth Avenue wing of the mall, gentlemen received stylish boutonnieres of succulents, and proceeded to snag a super-strong Maker’s Mark cocktail from the bar. As models showcased looks by John Varvatos, Saks and Ermenegildo Zegna, guests enjoyed delicious appetizers — plus melt-in-your-mouth desserts from Yauatcha — and awaited an intimate performance by Wild Moccasins, who graced the cover of CityBook’s October issue.

The band’s new album was a perfect party favor, courtesy of Mobile Vinyl Recorders, who were pressing records onsite.
