"Mad Recital" Fall/Winter 2012. A lot of Houston designers are working trend and retail angles. A designer that has also been around a few years, but doesn't get a lot of press is Richard Ramirez. He's pretty amazing. I've been to a few of his shows and he is always doing this type of deconstructive works in shapes that layer and comfort the body. At first glance, it looks awry, but having been to a few shows now, I've a better understanding each time. You have to experience this one for yourself. He showed in Spring Studios near downtown Houston where activity has been picking up quite a bit in the last year.
