Make Bayou City Art Festival Your Weekend Fashion Destination

Among the 450 artists scheduled to appear at this week's Bayou City Art Festival at Memorial Park are designers who focus on helping us curate our most personal art collections -- our wardrobes. If you are always on the hunt for one-of-a-kind jewelry, conceptual handbags, cut-to-fit leather belts and other "no one else will have it" items, the Bayou City Art Festival is not to be missed. The festival is also an opportunity to meet and work with artists on custom couture and bespoke designs as well, according to Art Colony Association board member Bart Truxillo.

"We have an extraordinary number of artists in the show, from around the United States and the world, and the festival allows for a dialogue about art between the artist and the customer. Whether it's painting, sculpture, jewelry or other wearable art, a lot of our artists take commissions from those who want custom work during [the festival]."
