It was a night of fashion and culture when Versace teamed with the Houston Symphony and Ceron and Todd Fiscus, hosts of the fashion festa which honored the 2013 Houston Symphony Ball chairs Phoebe and Bobby Tudor, and the centennial year of the symphony. Guests were still chattering about the ball’s luscious Russian theme, which was designed by Fiscus’ design company,
Todd Events. The ball was all Romanov opulence — blood-red roses, gold, monolithic iced caviar mounds and frozen vodka, and the stunning Pearl the fountain girl. A triumph! (See page 12 for the social coverage of “Russian Rhapsody — A White Night Salute to Hans and Margarita Graf.”) At this post-party, guests chatted in the Versace Galleria boutique and perused glamorous looks from the men’s and women’s spring collection; several of the hyper-popular Vanitas bags were rung up, with a percentage of the night’s proceeds going to the symphony coffers. Singing praises: Jana and Scott Arnoldy, Symphony executive director Mark Hanson with his wife Christina, Caroline Tudor, Jo and Jim Furr, Versace manager Antonio Gallegos, Cathy Echols, Marie Bosarge, Audrey Cochran,
Karen and Michael Mayell, and Joann and Bill Crassas.
