Ornamentation reigned supreme on the fall runways with designers from Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana, Jason Wu and Temperley and more draping their models in embroidered velvets, brocades, jewel prints and tones. Houston’s own PaperCity Magazine highlights the regal trend in their annual September fashion issue with a Royal Portraits inspired spread.
