It’s full steam ahead as the City’s new official fashion week, FASHION WEEK SATX launches official dates and its Anchor Events!

San Antonio, TX:  Style Lush TV and the State’s new non-profit dedicated to the positive
growth the Texas Fashion Industry launched official dates for the city’s new fashion week! The news broke
on Saturday, March 16th, at 10am on Style Lush TV’s Facebook and flooded the Instastories of Style Lush TV,
the Texas Fashion Industry Initiative 501C3 and FASHION WEEK SATX itself.

“After four years of researching, analyzing and historically documenting the San Antonio fashion scene, we
have determined the strongest areas of impact that will positively affect the San Antonio fashion industry
and turned them into our Anchor Events for the inaugural FASHION WEEK SATX! We are so excited. This is the
way it should be done. San Antonio doesn’t need to copy anyone. We do things our way and always
have. That’s why we stand out and I’m proud to continually encourage that individuality.” Says Burgundy
Woods, Chief Producer of FASHION WEEK SATX.

During this week-long celebration of fashion industry and culture, FASHION WEEK SATX will in fact be strongly
based in fashion shows, but contrary to the trend of traditional fashion weeks around the world, FASHION
WEEK SATX will showcase how the San Antonio fashion community collaborates with their surrounding
culture and genres of art.

“One of the most asked about genres is Fashion Art. Every year I get people who tell me I should get rid of
this genre; that it doesn’t make sense, it’s confusing, especially during the San Antonio Fashion Awards. I will
not! When I came home, this was a new genre of fashion that I saw tremendous potential in and is one of
the unique assets that sets us apart from every other fashion city around the world. I can’t tell you how
many artists have come up to me and said, “You know, I always knew I was an artist, I always knew I loved
fashion, but it wasn’t until you started identifying Fashion Art that I realized I was a Fashion-Artist. Thank you
for that.” Fashion Is Art will reflect that, it showcases our unique fashion artists, their inspired ideas and work,
celebrate the innovation of the genre and highlight the avant garde’ during its particular fashion shows. It
will be spectacular!”

Other Anchor Events for FASHION WEEK SATX include: Look Local Night – highlighting fashion retail, Beauty
Sphere – Highlighting Beauty, Makeup, Hair & Wellness, Celebrate San Antonio – highlighting ready-to-wear
& couture fashion designers, Street Beat – highlighting the streetwear industry in partnership with the San

As strong partners with Downtown and the #CityLife Movement, all anchor events will highlight the thrill of
Downtown living by showcasing different downtown venues as the stage for all Anchor Events. A sneak
peek with more details about the current Anchor Events can be seen at FashionWeekSATX.Org. FASHION
WEEK SATX is partners with various City Departments, @DowntownSATX/Centro, Activate Houston Street, the
San Antonio Street Art Initiative and the San Antonio River Authority. The Texas Fashion Industry Initiative
501C3 is currently accepting sponsors and advertisers with the next exciting website launch date set for July
1st.
