CultureMap Pop Up Shop

I'm proud to be an Official Ambassador of the CultureMap Holiday Pop Up Shop presented by Lexus tomorrow December 7, featuring 25 of Houston's best local retailers. I've partnered with Manoosh, a Houston based accessories and gift collection. They have an innovative approach to fashion bringing local art "out of the galleries and into your hands". Their collection of scarves features the work of artist Marilyn Biles. The digital printing process transfers her oil paintings onto fabric creating wearable art. How cool is that?! The scarves come in three gorgeous colors.  Manoosh will be debuting a new cashmere scarf tomorrow called Harmony. In addition, you can purchase hand letter pressed cards.
