HOUSTON, TX SEPTEMBER 24- The Houston Fashion Bloggers were invited to an exclusive event at the American Textile Recycle Services Center, in which the bloggers were able to model hand picked styles inspired from streetstyle and the runways of New York Fashion Week.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by ATRS' Chief Marketing Officer, Debra Stevenson-Peganyee. ATRS had a table with delicious bites and bubbly drinks. Debra then escorted us to the room where the team at ATRS had pulled styles and accessories from their warehouse for us to play dress-up with! The focus of the event was to show people how to recycle their clothing or as they like to call it; "up-cycle". Each blogger put together 2-3 styles and modeled them on ATRS's green carpet. Walking the "green" carpet, was so much fun! The clothes were organized into trends based on streetstyle and runway looks observed during New York Fashion Week. They had accessories galore! A row of shoes, handbags, belts, and jewelry! Everything, though gently used, looked new ! ATRS surprised us by letting us keep one of the 3 looks we styled for the green carpet! We were ecstatic to take our favorite styles home! Thank you ATRS for an amazing night! We can't wait until our next visit! Check out photos from our fun, girls night out!
