On October 12, the Italian Cultural & Community Center of Houston (ICCC) celebrated its second annual fashion show & luncheon.

The event celebrated Italian culture, creativity, and couture, and it benefited the ICCC scholarship fund. This year’s theme was inspired by La Dolce Vita, a 1960s film directed by Federico Fellini. Using black and gold, the ICCC transformed the ballroom of the River Oaks Country Club into an Italian runway worthy of any fashionista’s attention. The luncheon began with an inviting welcome by Master of Ceremonies and KPRC TV 2 Anchor Owen Conflenti, ICCC Executive Director Erika Myers, and Event Chairs Cheryl Arolfo Byington and Patti Imbrogno Murphy. The ICCC recognized ’70s and ’80s Fashion Designer Victor Costa as the guest of honor for the event. With an international roster of clients over the decades and highly regarded credentials as a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Costa has proven himself to be one of Texas’ most famous designers and a legendary mainstay in the fashion industry. The event chairs were two of the models who strutted the runway wearing gorgeous designs by guest of honor Victor Costa.
