Shopping Small, Shopping Local at Pop Up Houston

Long vintage dresses and anything that blings, these are a few of my favorite things! The highlight of opening night was the high fashion runway show coordinated by Andrea Shove (Owner of Forgotten Arts) featuring designs by Danny Nguyen, Datamosh, Forgotten Arts and 8 Palms. After a brief intermission, Forgotten Arts opened the second half of the show with their military inspired look what sent a message of global awareness, unity, liberation and freedom. Their use of the color black and messages like “Pray for Libya” illustrated that Forgotten Arts is about creating fashion with a purpose.
