What: MOD: A Modern Take on ‘60s Fashion

Where: LBJ Presidential Library

The lowdown: Though she sometimes gets overlooked for Jacqueline Kennedy when it comes to presidential sartorial inspiration, Lady Bird Johnson was a fashionista in her own right. On Friday, September 12, local designers paid homage to Lady Bird by crafting outfits inspired by her mod-esque wardrobe. 

Designers including Gail Chovan, Maria Silver and Paola Moore of Rare Trends, Daniel Esquivel​, Ross Bennett and Dawn Younger-Smith debuted catwalk-worthy couture for the occasion.
