Autumn in Houston always brings a return to elegance. But never more so than this fall, as the MFAH readies its show celebrating Oscar de la Renta. The season’s new dresses, including those from the late master designer’s own house, channel his spirit, with touches of refined sensuality, swaths of vibrant color and, most of all, odes to the garden.
