With a Runway over the Pool and Holiday Lights Aplenty, a Fash Bash Sparkles in The Woodlands

VIVACIOUS INFLUENCER AND fashionista Theresa Roemer and her husband Lamar hosted the fabulous Fashion Woodlands bash and Make-A-Wish Foundation fundraiser at their home, complete with a runway installed over the pool in the tented backyard.


The “over the top fashion show” had a “magical winter wonderland theme” with Christmas trees, holiday lights, shimmering metallic orbs of various types, and even chandeliers strung over the catwalk, said a rep for the event’s organizers.

Participating designers included Jose Sanchez of Mexico, London’s Dahlia Razzook, Houston native Cesar Galindo who bases in New York, and H-Town’s own Jonathan Blake, who has recently relaunched his career after a long hiatus.

The party was abuzz with flashy style, on and off stage — and one of the night’s most special moments came when a Make-A-Wish kid named Sidney got to strut the runway in a custom look made just for her by Blake. Modeling mogul Page Parkes was also on hand, donating modeling classes for Sidney, who’s angling to make her fashion debut in New York sometime soon! (The gal will have something sparkly to wear when she hits NYC, as the guest who won the $20,000 Mark Pharo earrings donated them to her.)

Many notables turned up for Fashion Woodlands, including Vicki Gunvalson of Real Housewives of Orange County, pink-haired society diva and all-star fashionista Vivian Wise, NFL pro Adrian Peterson, five-time Olympic speed-skating medalist Chad Hedrick, and Hector Villarreal of the famous Lucho men’s store.

ALWAYS A STUNNING evening, Asia Society Texas' Tiger Ball celebrated the beauty and diversity of Asian culture. Gold-flecked tablescapes, plants and gowns ensured that the glam, tented affair was absolutely glimmering — just like Tiger Ball chairs Chinhui and Eddie Allen and Heidi and David Gerger, as the event raised an impressive $1.5 million for AST's efforts to build a more inclusive community in Houston.

HOUSTON IS BUZZING with Rodeo fever, and the theme has taken everything over, from apparel to cocktails. If you’d rather dodge the traffic, crowds and parking of the HLSR at NRG Stadium, mosey on over to The Post Oak Hotel.
