The first list was nearly 10 years ago and limited to a very small radius around the city (30 miles). In 2017, we expanded it to include distances slightly farther away — up to 100 miles — given at how much is so close to us. How can we exclude the Gulf of Mexico?

“We're All Just Kind Of Costuming Ourselves Every Day”

I grew up in Houston. My family was Catholic, and I went to church, youth groups, Sunday school—that kind of stuff. I went to quite a conservative all-boys Catholic school, very academic and kind of old world, with priests teaching. But through working in the school theater, I was able to figure out who I was and start to express myself. I started to make costumes for productions—when I was a sophomore, we put on Hello, Dolly! and there was this red and white-striped women’s suit in the play, 1890s style. Honestly, that suit changed my life. Seeing it onstage and on the performer was like—I just thought she was amazing. That was the moment where I saw how clothes contribute so much to a person’s character development and how they are able to express themselves. At the end of the day, we're all just kind of costuming ourselves every day.
