Doyenne Diane Lokey Farb, Fashion Houston’s 2012 honoree and fashion icon, inaugurated this season’s shows with a viewing of just a smidge from her haute hopper of creations, many of which were made just for her. The fashion-minded came to revel amongst the groupings of garments that Farb has worn to such glamorous evenings as Chopard’s Cannes film festival fête in the south of France and noteworthy Houston nights such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s grand galas. Welcoming guests to the store were Neiman Marcus store director Bob Devlin, along with Stacey Swift and Liz Zarbua. Thanks to generous sponsors including Neiman’s and Momentum Audi, designers such as Zac Posen, Max Azria, David Peck, Gemma Kahng and Monique Lhuillier took to the Fashion Houston runway this year. In the kickoff crowd: Ceron; Joyce Echols and Elizabeth Petersen, both looking terribly chic in all black; cosmetics guru and Neiman Marcus alum Janet Gurwitch; Chanel’s Amy Logan; Donna and Robert Bruni; Frances Marzio; Judith Oudt; and Momentum Audi general manager Jared Lang.
