LOCAL Houston | The City Guide November 2016 - Page 4

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR T Which brings me to our annual Fashion Issue. In the following pages, you’ll read about local people – new names and familiar ones – who follow their own paths fashion-and style-wise, in addition to all the food, community and art coverage we bring you every month. In a really unorthodox fashion spread, artists Marjon Aucoin and Dandee Warhol have teamed up with stylist MarziFat to blur the lines between fashion and reality. This month, you’ll also explore great places to shop, dine out with Janice Schindeler and Brian Tagtmeier, go to the club with Mike Cook and learn what Greggory Burk loves…I’ll admit it, I’ve been dying to know. Thanks to our great team of writers and photographers for once again helping us put out another solid issue of LOCAL.

I love the change of seasons and the chance to maybe wear a sweater outdoors, or even the poncho my friend Jay Landa brought me from Peru a few months ago. I might not be worthy of a fashion profile, but I’ve reached an age where I pretty much wear whatever makes me happy or laugh that day. Luckily, I don’t work in a corporate environment where I would die a slow death by a thousand Dockers.
