TeKay Designs released their Crown Collection of high end evening dresses and pageant gowns, and their signature Queen of the Brides collection at the fifth season of Houston Fashion Week.
Houstonians celebrated a week of fashion and philanthropy during the annual Houston Fashion Week showcased at the JW Marriott Hotel. Notable dignitaries in attendance were Trinelle Mc Hughes-Thomas from the City of Houston (Mayor’s office), Miss Houston, Miss Teen Houston, Mrs. Texas Int’l, Miss Jr. Lone Star State and Miss Teen Texas. The event spanned six days; and is produced by a group of local models, fashion photographers and style enthusiasts who are in support of Houston’s local Fashion Designers. There was a silent auction of dresses created by the participating designers to help raise financial support for the National Spinal Cord Injury Association’s chapter in Houston. The catwalk was wheelchair accessible, making this the first wheelchair friendly runway format for the Houston Fashion Week event.
During the awards segment, one designer, Kimma Wreh of TeKay Designs was awarded the Best Couture Designer and Best Bridal Designer title for the “Queen of the Brides” gown collection and the “Crown Collection” of formal gowns. Kimma Wreh also won the Best Fashion Designer of the Year award. The voting was based on scores by affiliate networks of the event, which included the Houston Fashion and Beauty Chamber. TeKay’s Queen of the Brides Collection is a high-end bridal line with each gown representative of a historic woman of power and social significance from different countries around the world. The line is heavily influenced by ancient Egyptian and European styles and adorned with lavish accessories. The bridal collection carries white and cream colored gowns with gold trimmings. This season the line introduces a silver ensemble into the bridal collection. The bridal gowns were created using silver pleated satin fabric inserted into a silver metallic lace, which offers women a striking appearance.
