THE SETTING: The gorgeous Junior League of Houston’s Ballroom was filled with hundreds of excited guests at both the lunch and dinner events. Over the years, guests have come to expect surprises and this Opening Style Show featuring featuring the Elizabeth Anthony | Esther Wolf Collection was no exception. This year, the League dazzled its guests with Runway Seating and swag bags filled with the latest treats from Houston’s hottest boutiques.
THE VIBE: Charming southern hospitality at its best. The Junior League of Houston has been sponsoring style shows since 1929, with the Opening Style Show traditionally marking the beginning of a new League year with League volunteers modeling the latest in fashion trends.
THE CAUSE: Leading the helm of this year’s luncheon were League President Marian Hilpert, Development Vice President Rachel Reagan, Tea Room Director Tanya Leiber and Special Events Chairman Courtney Culver. Swag bags were donated by Kendra Scott Jewelry and Edward Sanchez’ Vanity Lounge. Members of the League’s leadership also wore jewelry from Tenebaum & Co, the Presenting Jeweler Sponsor, while enjoying the show. League President, Marian Hilpert, highlighted the League’s participation in Kids in the Kitchen, which is a Junior League initiative to fight childhood obesity and engages children in the preparation of healthy meals as a means to educate them and their parents about nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices.
