FASHION X HOUSTON: Saturday October 7, 2017
Earlier this month, Fashion X Houston put on a series of runway shows at the River Oaks District. My mentor and friend David Peck showed his newest Miles David collection on the last night of the event. He paired JESSIE DUGAN accessories with his awesome American couture designs. It was a beautiful collection and I’m so glad I got to be a part of it. I’m always inspired by David’s ability to maintain an integrity to his clothing: his designs are consistently elevated and sophisticated yet there is a freshness to each new collection.
I’ve always had a special place in my heart for runway shows. In NYC, I worked as a runway accessories designer for Tory Burch. Getting ready New York Fashion Week every season was always the most exciting and chaotic part of that job. When I moved back to Houston, I met with David Peck, who has been designing in Houston for 10 years now. He asked if I would design some accessories that would pair well with his amazing couture dresses that he could use in his runway shows as well as sell in his atelier. Designing and making couture accessories for David became the first part of what is now the JESSIE DUGAN brand. Now my line includes more simple, everyday pieces that are sold online but I still have a flair for the dramatic and like create one-of-a-kind pieces that walk the runway. I’ve started to sell these limited edition pieces on my website. Check out these runway pieces under the SHOP > COLLECTIONS > LIMITED EDITION.
