Local womenswear designers Amir Taghi, David Peck, and Jonathan Blake made a compelling argument for Houston as a crossroads of creation with their collaborative event Made in Houston. Not only are they native sons, but each bases his business and production here. Peck’s Upper Kirby atelier played host to the night, which afforded fashionables a firsthand glimpse at creations from all three, cleverly accessorized with vintage pieces from the Vintage Contessa, Donae Chramosta, another member of Houston’s creative collective — think enviable Hermès Kelly bags and classic Chanel jewelry. Advocates of the inspired: Monica Guerrero, Parissa Mohajer, Sharron Melton, Crystal Noto, and Judy Nyquist.
