Entering it’s 6th year, Austin Fashion Week is now established as one of the premier fashion events in the Southern United States.
Recently tabbed as the 42nd most influential global fashion capital (the highest ranking in Texas) by Global Language Monitor, Austin’s fame for music, film and food now extends to fashion.
Austin Fashion Week has been critically acclaimed across the board by media outlets like Elle Magazine, RackedLA, Fashionista.com, Southern Living Magazine, the Austin American Statesman and more.
Independent designers from all over the world have debuted collections during Austin Fashion Week, receiving press from some of the most noted bloggers & traditional media outlets across the global fashion scene.
Named a “Fashion Week to Watch” by Fashionista.com, Austin has clearly established itself as the most cutting edge fashion city in the South, mixing eclectic southern genteel designs with rockstar attitude.
With the emergence of the US Grand Prix (FormulaOne), SXSW, ACL Festival, ESPN XGames and the like, Austin is clearly a cultural hub and trendsetting city. Austin Fashion Week brands will gain exposure to the city’s and region’s top style influencers.
