Join us for the third annual Italian Cultural & Community Center Fashion Show and Luncheon. This year we are Celebrating the Jewels of Italy and toasting those facets of Italy that we all know and love: the fashion, the food, the wine, the culture, its history and artistry.

Italy has contributed many jewels to our city, and we will honor Rosie Carrabba as one of those gems.

Our luncheon and fashion show will feature Italian designs curated by Neiman Marcus, lunch at the River Oaks Country Club, a chance to win a spectacular Italian jewel, and other exciting activities, including a silent auction which will launch online one week before the event.

Since 2000, the Italian Cultural & Community Center of Houston has granted over $250,000 in scholarships to college students in the greater Houston area. This event will help further the ICCC’s goal to create opportunities for advanced learning, including assisting students who are participating in a study-abroad program in Italy. We hope you will help us inspire these young, bright students to achieve their dreams!

The River Oaks Country Club


River Oaks Country Club was founded in 1923 in the River Oaks neighborhood in Houston.

Prominent architect John F. Staub was hired to design the original two-story Spanish revival clubhouse. The club house was built south of the golf course that was designed by Donald Ross. The current clubhouse was built in the 1950s on the same site as the original. River Oaks is known for its philanthropic and community-leading membership and its beautiful views. It is extremely exclusive. It is located at 1600 River Oaks Boulevard, Houston TX.
