Tootsies and Posh Hotel Host a VIP Viewing of Design House's Latest Collection

TOOTSIES CREATIVE DIRECTOR Fady Armanious showed up to the Post Oak Hotel in a long, sheer, billowy, floral-bedecked coat — and sold it right off his back!


Armanious was, seemingly, both modeling and hosting an exclusive trunk show featuring Oscar de la Renta's 2023 Resort and Spring collection, held on an upper floor of the posh hotel. Stylish Houstonians sipped and shopped the romantic designs, many worn by models. Tootsies senior buyer Penne Weidig, owner Donna Lewis and manager Shelley Ludwick mingled with the VIP attendees.

Enter Maximo in the same space, a new Mexican concept owned by Benjy Levit (Local Foods, Lees Den, Eau Tour), Luhrman, and Dylan Murray of Local Foods.
