Houston Does Round Top: Local Designers' 'Fashion on the Farm' Party Flourishes

THANKS IN PART to creative Houstonians, Round Top has become so much more than an antique-shopping destination. Take, for example, the second annual Fashion on the Farm party, hosted by Houston-based designers Hunter Bell and Linsay Radcliffe.

The shopping-and-cocktails event was held at Dog Trot Farm, and featured pop-up shops by women-owned and independent designers interspersed with shabby-chic vignettes where guests could sit and enjoy drinks by Dripping Springs Vodka and Precept Winery. Singer-songwriter Caroline Hale provided a live soundtrack and Graze HTX served up beautiful snacking boards.

Bell showed off her latest collection in her eponymous line of casual-chic separates and dresses; the pieces' cozy vintage fabrics and a lived-in feel reflect her inspiration of nature. Radcliffe's accessory line The Freya Brand, Hibiscus Linens, Fraulein Boot Company, Ellzey, Garden Girls and California-based Jenni Kayne were also among the exhibited brands.

"Dot Trot Farm and Round Top are such magical places with independent spirits," said Radcliffe after the event wrapped. "To be able to share this with and to support independent designers, well-known brands, and talented creatives and to continue to create wonderful memories and friendships is what it’s all about.”

GIVEN THEIR LINEAGE, the Childress brothers’ success may come as little surprise. Masterminds behind 3-D product-imaging company Kermit Labs, Wells, 31, and Knox, 26, got their sharp eye for design from their interior-decorator mom Kara — and their entrepreneurial spirit from Houston-Oiler-turned-auto-dealer father Ray.
