IN ITS SHORT four-year history, Miami-based Stitch Lab has been a "talent incubator" for more than 150 Latin American-owned fashion brands. For the first time, Stitch Lab takes on H-Town, for a three-day pop-up at River Oaks District.


Taking place Oct. 7-9, the event will celebrate Latin culture and its impact in the United States, particularly in Houston. “We couldn't think of a better way to kickstart our celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month than sharing our vision with the vibrant and diverse community of Houston,” said Karina Rosendo, CEO & Founder of Stitch Lab, in a statement. She continues on to say that the weekend will include a "one-of-a-kind shopping experience" and an "incredible curation of Latin American fashion designers that you won't find anywhere else."

An opening cocktail party at the complex's Le Colonial restaurant will be attended by 20 featured designers, and attendees will get a sneak peek of the evening dresses, intricate shoes, matching sets, funky jewelry and more, all available at suite A160 next to Alice and Olivia. Cocktails courtesy of Old Parr will be available throughout the weekend, and guests can expect pop-ups within the pop-up from brands like NARS and Bella Rinova.

HOW DID YOU come together as a team?

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.

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.
