Not to sound cliché but Kaleidoscope Houston 2016 Imaginarium was more than I could have imagined! (Lol) As I walked into the Vivaldi Stone Boutique, the first thing I thought was, “Why didn’t I know about this space before tonight?!?!?” It looked like a museum exhibit dedicated to beautifully curated natural stone slabs. It’s still hard to believe that it’s primarily a show room and not a social venue.
DJ FXBOX OLMOS kept the grooves and tunes flowing the entire evening. Art for the evening was provided by Jammie Hawkins, Mark Deleon, and Justin Pelke. The fashion forward host Shawn Flowers and hilarious Chris Thomas interacted so well with the crowd. They kept us laughing and smiling the whole time and made us apart of the night via an impromptu dance party.
The live performances by Fenyx Aerial, Stella Marie Manalo, Toki Singh, and Son Kiss’d set us all on fire! Vintage collector and stylist Heather Petrey sent unique combos down the runway that showed her eclectic style. The modern romantic pieces from Of Myth + Muse by Emelia Natalicchio left us wondering how quickly her pieces would be available to take home. (Ha ha!) Glove designer Damari Rubio of Damari & CO., Jewelry designer Michelle Yue of Shopnonhuman, and fashion designer André Redou came together for a special collaboration that will never be forgotten.
As the night was coming to a close, I couldn’t get over the budding excitement for Kaleidoscope 2017. I know Pamela Andino and the entire Kaleidoscope team has something even more extraordinary up their sleeves. Journey through the experience yourself by checking out the photos. Don’t be shy, leave a comment if something catches you eye! 🙂 Enjoy!
