An Evening with Designer Stephen Dweck – Recipe for Success
Recipe for Success Foundation packed the house on Neiman Marcus’ third level for another gorgeous Dress for Dinner event. For this round of the fashion series benefiting the Foundation’s efforts to combat childhood obesity, New York designer Stephen Dweck made a special appearance to present his latest collection and mix and mingle with Houston fashionistas. His latest collection is inspired by the colors of Spring as well as the multitude of colorful vegetables, keeping in line with the Recipe For Success Veg Out Program. Stephen also is in love with India and the bright and bold colors of Bollywood.
Over a hundred of Houston’s most savvy style-seekers came out for the evening to welcome spring fashion with Dweck. The runway featured Neil Hamil models donning pieces that celebrate the season. Following the show, a select group of guests retired to Mariposa to enjoy an intimate dinner by Chef Jose Hernandez of Radio Milano with Dweck, Gracie Cavnar, Event Chair Leisa Holland-Nelson and Neiman Marcus’ own Bob Devlin and Stacey Swift.
This year’s Dress for Dinner Chairs Leisa Holland-Nelson and daughter Laura Max Rose invite all to join them for the series season finale at Tootsies on May 6, when they will celebrate the honorees of The 2015 Fashion Gene Awards. Each year, The Fashion Gene Awards are bestowed upon a selection of mothers and daughters nominated for their impeccable sense of style. This year’s show features designer Nanette Lepore and her daughter Violet, and will be followed by a limited seating dinner by Chef Barbara McKnight of Culinaire.
Supporting this fashionable soiree were: Kim Padgett, Alex Blair, Neal Hamil, Varda Dror, Karina Barbieri, Sally M Dwyer, Jo Ann Schwartz Woodward, and many others.
