EVENT: KYRA “VERMILLION” PRESENTATION
WHERE:RONIN ART HOUSE
In the midst of fashion weeks hosted around the world, Houston made its contribution to the fashion world. Designer Kemi Alao of KYRA premiered her newest collection, Vermillion, at the new Ronin Art House. In the form of a standing presentation, models were arranged in an art installation featuring platforms and netting. On the surrounding walls were a series of vibrant paintings by Jonathan Paul Jackson. The intense hues of KYRA’s collection were backed by Jackson’s bold abstract art. Both artists’ work harmonized together, creating an atmosphere where guests saw Alao’s inspiration for “Vermillion” – tropical fish. Backstage, a dynamic team of Houston’s most creative hair and makeup artists worked with models, including key makeup artist Aliesha Bree, Estefania of Alluring Complexions, Jasmine Vital and Raketta of Conceited Looks. Hair stylists included Nancy Zumaya of Cut, Color, Create and Krystal of Hair and Beauty Studio. Select items from the collection will be available for pre-order in the upcoming weeks.
