Every woman is a work of art in her own right. We love that. Plus, some of the most famous art collections live in closets on hangers. Here we present this spring’s most luxurious party frocks against the backdrop of some of today’s most prolific Texas artists. Go ahead, dance up a storm in your own, artful way.
