We recently attended the 2nd Annual Dressed to Give Fashion Show and it was such a beautiful event.  It was filled with so much entertainment, performances and of course FASHION!  The glamorous event was held at the beautiful St. Anthony Hotel and it was the perfect backdrop for such a meaningful event.  

The 2nd Annual Dressed to Give is a fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  The event was founded by Dr. Damon Ross as part of his advocacy to help raise awareness for leukemia and lymphoma, diseases that have affected several people close to his heart.    


The fashion show featured 12 international designers, 60 adult models and 30 children, some of whom are cancer warriors and survivors. The guest speaker of the night was the incredible pint-sized, world-renowned motivational speaker, King Nahh. Known for his desire to entertain, educate and empower the world’s children, youth and young adults, this inspiring third grader has worked with community civic leaders as they work to address issues plaguing inner city communities by developing solution-oriented programs. Aiden G, named the Most Beautiful Baby in the World, will also appear as part of the show. 

The event was filled with so many wonderful designers that we had to break this coverage up into 3 parts.  Today we introduce you to a local designer who just debuted his first-ever collection of his brand new line Lucio Couture!  His eveningwear designs were 100% hand sewn and will make any girl feel beautiful and sexy! His color palette was one of rich royal colors such as emerald green and bordeaux.  His use of sheer and sequins was exquisite and can we say just take a moment to appreciate his incorporation of perfectly placed high slits. Magical!

This show will catapult him to one of the top desirable designers to work with in San Antonio and to purchase from so I suggest you sign up now for your custom piece from the elegant Lucio Couture debut collection.  I will even go out on a limb and make a claim that he will most likely be a nominee for the Womenswear category of the 2nd Annual San Antonio Fashion Awards.

I hope you enjoyed his collection as much as we did!  To contact Michael Anthony Lucio, feel free to follow him on his social sites:
