Fash Bash at River Oaks District Toasts Glam New Boutique's Arrival

YET ANOTHER FABULOUS boutique has bowed at River Oaks District, and some of the city's most stylish gal pals hosted a fash bash to celebrate.

Australian fashion house Zimmermann threw open the doors to its second Texas boutique and first in Houston. Melissa Strong, Megan Cushing, Angela Daniels and Laura Zehl invited friends to toast the occasion and shop Zimmermann's Fall 2022 "Stargazer" collection; a portion of sales from the evening was donated to Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Family Alliance.

Known for its flowing, feminine frocks and understated glamour, Zimmermann naturally applied the same aesthetic to its new boutique, which is light and bright and filled with art by Australian makers like Bridie Gilman — and plenty of pops of green, one of the brand's signature colors.

“DO YOU KNOW how a river forms?” is the question that begins Houston author Vaishnavi Patel’s new book, Goddess of the River. The voice belongs to Ganga, goddess of India’s Ganges river, who has been transformed against her will by Lord Shiva from “a tributary of the cosmic ocean” into the physical form of a mere winding river, with no path to the heavens, only the sea. Later, Ganga runs afoul of a powerful sage who transforms her yet again into a human, and as it happens in myths, things get complicated.
