This past Friday, April 1, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston launched it’s first ever Bayou Bend Fashion Show and Luncheon benefitting the operating budget of Bayou Bend Collections and Gardens. This inaugural event was a grand kick-off to an annual weekend of traditional festivities benefiting Bayou Bend.  The setting on the grounds of Ima Hogg’s mansion could not have been a more perfect backdrop for this very chic event which included all of Houston’s most stylish women and featured a fashion runway show of stunning designer fashions from Houston Galleria’s newest ‘jewel box’, The Webster.  Laure Heriard Dubreuill and her team curated 35 exclusive new looks that graced the runway under this beautifully tented luncheon. The chairs were quoted as saying, “With Laure and The Webster on board, the show promises to be the hottest fashion ticket of the spring.”  That it was!

Below are some of the ladies who graced this event with their great sense of style…..
